What CDT Code do I use? Dental Coding is a mystery for many hygienists, new and seasoned. Hygienists provide dental care and procedures based upon our patients needs, but are you properly coding for what you do? The ADA defines CDT codes are intended to “achieve uniformity, consistency and specificity inaccurately documenting dental treatment” You will learn the common coding mistakes and how to identify and research the necessary codes. Protect your ethics and your license by correctly billing for care, not for what insurance will cover. Attendees will leave more confident in their coding ability and understanding.
