DentalCodeology: More than Pocket Change
Patti DiGangi, RDH, BS, recently published a dental insurance coding guide entitled, DentalCodeology: More than Pocket Change.
DentalCodeology: More than Pocket Change is the first book of a series designed to guide dental clinicians into the coding and electronic health records world. As dentistry moves from a treatment-centered model to a diagnostic-centered model, consistent and accurate coding will be vital to ensure interoperability with the rest of healthcare industry. The book covers 4 of the 12 sections of CDT code related to periodontal care, including: D0100 - 0999, Diagnosis; D1000 - 0199, Preventative; D4000 - 0499, Periodontics; D9000 - 9999, Adjunctive Services.
