PRODA (Provider Digital Access) for the dental practice
Now you will need a PRODA login* to claim payment immediately for Child Dental Benefits Schedule and Veteran’s Affairs. Online claiming is easy and brings enhanced cash flow to your dental practice. At our practice all our receptionists have become familiar with HPOS, checking out CDBS eligibility and claiming payments straight away from the government.

SmartDentist is helping dental practice get their the new PRODA system up and running.
Record your PRODA ID in your staff profile on Smartdentist AND Smartdentist creates a PRODA ID list that can be printed or emailed so people can easily ‘delegate’ to each other. This is a great place to keep these details and as staff come and go you don’t have to try and remember where you placed your PRODA ID.
SmartDentist Staff Profile also allows you to record an additional email address.
We use this additional email address for the PRODA 2 step verification (so reception staff don’t need their mobile phones or to access their home email while working at reception). The SmartDentist Staff profile allows me to let the staff know what email address they should setup for their PRODA login.
Creating individual staff emails using your domain name (email aliases)
For those practice managers unfamiliar with creating an “email alias” you can actually have email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com all as email aliases for firstname.lastname@example.org. e.g multiple email names for the same email address.
Depending on your email system it may cost up to $7 per user per month for additional emails, but not if you are using an email alias!
*PRODA login for the HPOS on the Dept of Human Services site is not compulsory yet but the USB connections for our reception computers have been damaged by “USB stick in – USB stick out” and we want our system up and running BEFORE they close down the PKI certificates.
