Your patient presents with inflamed, hemorrhagic gingiva, light to moderate subgingival calculus, and generalized pseudo-pocketing. There was no code to accurately define the care needed to treat these patients. The D4346 code finally assists in clearly identifying and treating gingivitis after decades of merely dumping gingival inflammation into the same category as health. We have been providing the care anyway, and this code provides a reason for patients to return to your practice, improve their health and boost your bottom line. This code isn’t just a number; it’s a game changer for dentists, hygienists, business professionals and every staff member. This code can boost the bottom line of the practice when we take the time to examine an update our systems.
Upon completion of this evidence-based clinical course, the participant will be able to:
• Identify 8 major focus points to grasp to correctly implement the D4346 code
• Protect against fraud being committed even by accident
• Guard against misuse of this new gingivitis code and not miss the disease present.
• Create simple and effective “Twitter-Style” dental-medical necessity narratives
