I work in a multi provider practice. If a patient is seen by one dentist in our office and a treatment plan is developed, then seen in our practice by a different dentist for a second opinion on this treatment plan, what code is used for the second appointment?
This depends on the documentation either D0140 or D0160 would be appropriate depending on the type of examination given and the "medical decision making".
