Dental practices that are successfully billing medical insurance and implementing sleep apnea and/or TMD treatment are not lucky – they just have the proper training of protocols down. Nierman Practice Management understands this, and dedicates the majority of their resources to providing expert support and training to each and every client.

Our Story

Nierman Practice Management has been the leader in helping dentists get paid by medical insurance for 28 years, with a compelling history of innovation and unwavering dedication to a needed solution.

Founded in 1988 by Rose Nierman, her journey began as a hygienist in a busy dental practice treating TMJ disorders.  Rose recognized a way to successfully bill patients’ medical insurance, allowing patients to receive treatments they otherwise would not have been able to obtain. Realizing the potential to help other dental practices with this knowledge, she refined and documented her protocols, and in 1988 wrote her first manual “Successful Medical Insurance in Dentistry.”

She had found her calling, and founded Nierman Practice Management as she began teaching dental practices how to implement medical billing in their own practice. Her secret revolved around proper communication and documentation – knowing how to communicate with insurance companies, and showing medical necessity through thorough narrative reports.

But dental practices were struggling to find the time to hand-write these narrative reports for each patient visit, and if there were any errors on the medical claim form, reimbursement would be denied!



There had to be a way to make it easier for dental practices to streamline the medical billing process. Rose knew this was something big. She had a vision, and was on a mission.

In 1991, she developed the first version of DentalWriter™ Software, transforming the industry of medical billing in dentistry.

DentalWriter™ collects data from the patient questionnaire and exam visit, and generates the medical claim form, and a custom narrative report in SOAP format that physicians and medical insurance use to communicate. In addition, DentalWriter contains Quickletters™, which are all of the forms and letters needed when implementing dental sleep medicine and TMJ services.

DentalWriter™ has since become the leading dental software for implementing dental sleep medicine, TMD, and medical billing in dentistry.

Presently Nierman Practice Management also educates over 1,000 dental professionals each year through their CE seminar programs for dental sleep medicine, TMD, and dental-medical billing, and successfully bills over $50 million in TMD & dental sleep medicine reimbursement annually through DentalWriter™ Software & CrossCode™ Medical Billing Services.
