Become a coding wizard! The American Dental Association’s (ADA) Codes on Dental Procedures and Nomenclature, better known as the CDT (Current Dental Terminology) Codes, was designed to establish standardized codes and descriptions to report dental procedures. These codes are a HIPAA national standard for electronic claims transactions. However, information as to the specific application of many of these codes is limited. Learn strategies and guidance for proper application and documenting of the current 2022 ADA CDT preventive dental codes and how to apply them when making a dental hygiene treatment plan for your patients.
- For the participants to gain comprehensive knowledge regarding the use of the ADA CDT 2022 preventive codes at the dental hygiene visit.
