January 1 kicks off the New Year and for dental offices, this means the new CDT codes get ushered in. Before the ball drops in Times Square, you need to be in the know with the CPT changes. The MDS Dental Practice Committee encourages all members to order the CDT 2017: Dental Procedure Code reference book from the ADA and the corresponding CDT 2017 Companion: Help Guide for the Dental Team guide book. There are 11 new CPT codes, including code D4346 for scaling in presence of generalized moderate or severe gingival inflammation - full mouth, after oral evaluation.
