SNODENT is a set of clear, accurate terms created for use in electronic dental records. It is recognized by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as an ADA/ANSI standard. But these terms do much more than simply help dentists record their patients’ dental findings.
SNODENT is harmonized with SNOMED-CT, the broader body of terms used in electronic medical records, making it a shared language for coordinated care. Researchers also benefit from the detailed data they can glean from data sets that use SNODENT. This language is also aligned with ICD-10-CM to facilitate accurate dental billing.
