Dental IMEs and Reviews

dentists is utilized to conduct independent dental exams and reviews. Our
clinical examinations and reviews address casualty, necessity of treatment, and
appropriateness of fees. Dental exams and reviews help in both casualty and

All examinations and reviews are scheduled quickly and completed in a timely
manner. Included in the service are all scheduling and rescheduling,

also assist in obtaining x-rays if needed.
Most dental subspecialties are included in the network, so that exams and
reviews can be done in the same specialty as the treating provider. Frequently,
referrals are made for evaluation of TMJ disorders and other specialized areas.
Criteria for dentist selection include board certification in the specialty
area, active dental practice, active license, experience in performing dental
examinations and reviews and willingness to testify.
Reports are available electronically, by fax and by mail. United Review
