Another year and another Code on Dental Procedures and Nomenclature (CDT) update. The CDT 2019 is the dental office reference manual that the American Dental Association publishes on an annual basis. This manual contains all the CDT codes which are the national terminology for reporting dental services on claims submitted to insurance companies.
For 2019, there are 15 new codes, five revised codes and four deleted codes. It is important for offices to update their systems to coincide with these changes so they can reflect the proper billing code for treatments performed. See a breakdown of changes in the November/December Wisconsin Dental Association Journal.
