Contour extended: Importance of knowing the CDT codes

Understanding the Current Dental Terminology (CDT) codes and ensuring proper coding is crucial to improve time management and make your practice succeed. It also prevents ethical and legal issues. In my previous 10-year experience as an office manager, I observed local dentists make coding errors, get audited or lose their license from insurance fraud. While most dentists are not knowingly billing incorrectly, they should know how to correct these mistakes.
