Coding Education

Some CDT Codes, especially recent additions, may not be readily understood by dentists and others in the dental community.  These codes prompt a need for a coordinated educational message on the procedure and its reporting.  The American Dental Association, with support from organizations on the Code Maintenance Committee and others in the dental community, has developed a variety of educational material.  This information, within the following list of topics, is available online for anyone to download, read or view.

  • Guidance on the D4346 Scaling Procedure
  • Coding for Prevention - A Primer on Procedures for Long-Term Oral Health
  • Guidance on CDT Code for a "Strip Crown"
  • Case Management Procedures (D9991-D9994)
  • Documenting Interpreter and Translator Services—Affordable Care Act Section 1557
