D4346 Opportunity or Confusion?
with special guest
Patti DiGangi, RDH, BS

 

Using the new D4346 CDT 2017 code, we can finally treat gingivitis after decades of merely dumping gingival inflammation into the same category as health. This new code can potentially close the loop and elevate our standard of care. With increasing research pointing to the connection between oral disease and medical conditions, the timing is perfect. Early recognition ensures earlier intervention and disease prevention. Yet it isn’t just a new code, different thinking is needed. This code has brought as many questions as answers.

Upon completion of this webinar, the participant will:

  • Recognize which type of oral evaluation is appropriate before delivery of D4346 and when it must be completed
  • Identify ways to quantify inflammation to support submission of new D4346
  • Differentiate this new scaling procedure (D4346) from the current debridement procedure (D4355), prophylaxis (D1110/D1120) and scaling and root planning codes (D4341 and D4342)
