What "Cleaning" Procedure Code is Correct? CE

October 9, 2020
Time: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us for a 2 hour CE course on What "Cleaning" Procedure Code is Correct? The course is open to all dental professionals and staff.

 

Treatment planning and management of dental hygiene/periodontal procedures can be as complicated. Selection of the appropriate CDT procedure codes (NOT insurance codes) which best describe the preventive/periodontal treatment is vital to the business team being able to not only bill the patient correctly but submit claims to third-party payers which will glide through the system and be paid.  

Treatment planning and reporting begins with an accurate diagnosis and knowing the procedure codes and their descriptors (which can change yearly!). This interactive presentation will help participants understand the relationship between the technical/clinical side and the business/financial side of managing periodontal disease.  While the challenges are real, they are not insurmountable.

Clinical practice today uses scientifically sound evidence-based approaches. There is a noticeable shift to the caries treatment paradigm by better preventing and managing caries as a disease.

This presentation will present a scientific overview of caries management by risk assessment utilizing new tools such as the ADA Caries Classification System, silver diamine fluoride (SDF), partial caries removal, and glass ionomer cement (GIC) to managing caries. Actual clinical cases will be used to illustrate these concepts.

The presentation provides an excellent update relevant to clinical applications for the dentist, hygienist, assistants and front office.
