ADA Releases CDT 2016: Dental Procedure Codes



Designed for dentists and dental offices working with third-party payers required to use CDT codes, CDT 2016: Dental Procedure Codes is now available from the ADA.

The Code on Dental Procedures and Nomenclature in CDT 2016 is the only HIPAA-recognized code set for dentistry. The new guide also highlights 19 new, 12 revised, and 8 deleted codes.

Additionally, the CDT 2016 Companion: Help Guide and Training Manual includes detailed coding scenarios and answers the most common coding questions to ensure ease of use.

Available for iOS and Android, an award-winning app enables dental professionals to access CDT codes with their handheld devices. An e-book and several product bundles complete the CDT 2016 offerings.

The codes will go into effect on Jan. 1, 2016, so there is time to use the materials for staff training. CDT 2016 products can be ordered at or by calling (800) 947-4746.
