CHICAGO, June 29, 2011 –The American Dental Association (ADA) is making it easier and faster for dentists to find dental billing codes by introducing the new CDT Code Check app for the iOS (iPhone, iPad) and Android-powered mobile devices (phones and tablets).

The CDT Code Check, which contains every Code on Dental Procedures and Nomenclature, is a portable resource designed to assist dental professionals who use procedure codes for developing treatment plans, managing patient medical charts and submitting insurance claims. Because the app is portable, it’s the perfect tool for dentists and dental staff who travel between offices.

The app includes new and revised codes with marked changes. The app includes a complete listing of each CDT Code, including category of service, subcategory, procedure code, nomenclature and descriptor. Users can also search by code number or keyword. The app is available for $19.99 in the Apple iTunes Store and the Android Market by searching for the phrase "CDT Code Check."
