CDT 2016: Dental Procedure Codes

American Dental Association

Use the book as a visual reminder for staff that the most detailed coding resource — with the answers to many of their questions — is at their fingertips. Improved organization and handy tables allow users to find information more quickly, and make correct coding easier for everyone. Includes claim form with detailed instructions for completion, as well as a searchable digital version for quick code look up.
