Rose Nierman

Founder - Nierman Practice Management

Rose Nierman is the founder & CEO of Nierman Practice Management and the most experienced cross-coding educator in the world. Ms. Nierman has more experience teaching dental practices the correct and most efficient ways to implement a successful medical billing protocol than any other group. In fact, her name has become synonymous with cross-coding & medical billing in dentistry.

Ms. Nierman pioneered the cross-coding field in dentistry in 1988 by writing the first manual and software for cross-coding, and sharing her knowledge across the country to dental practices seeking to bill medical insurance for TMJ treatment. Since that time, Nierman Practice Management has become a major resource for dental practices offering medically necessary services.

Rose stays on the cutting edge of current medical billing knowledge and presents the most ethical protocols for billing. From her 30+ years of experience in the dental-medical billing field, she is a wealth of knowledge, and her warm-hearted, energetic speaking style makes medical billing fun!
