New codes, new staff, new diagnoses—these situations can slow down the billing process and cause coding confusion. This companion book to CDT 2021: Current Dental Terminology compiles more than 200 frequently asked coding questions and gives the answers dentists and dental teams need. It also presents more than 140 common dental coding scenarios and explains how to properly resolve them.

In addition to adding new coding scenarios and coding Q&As, the section on ICD-10 coding has been enhanced and expanded. Information on coding for people with special healthcare needs has been added, as well as a resource for smoking cessation and dental care.

The CDT Companion explains codes dealing with:

• Counseling for the control and prevention of adverse oral, behavioral, and systemic health effects associated with high-risk substance use, including vaping
• Medicament application for the prevention of caries
• Image captures done through teledentistry by a licensed practitioner to forward to another dentist for interpretation
• Testing to identify patients who may be infected with SARS-CoV-2 (aka COVID-19)

For years, the ADA’s Council on Dental Benefits has fielded questions from dentists and dental teams. CDT 2021 Coding Companion: Training Guide for the Dental Team has all the answers—it’s an essential resource for every dental office to be used as a self-guided training tool, a helpful refresher and an everyday resource.
