5 codes every dental hygienist needs to know
from Dentistry IQ
We all know that current dental terminology (CDT) codes are part of every dental office, yet some dental professionals report never having been formally trained in coding, and are not familiar with the details. What some may not realize, however, is that knowledge of CDT codes is not solely the responsibility of the business team. A common misconception is that the codes are "insurance codes." Although insurance is one of the areas in which CDT codes are utilized, they are procedure codes that come from the American Dental Association. They do not come from insurance companies.
