If we have a young pediatric patient that is present for a filling but will not cooperate what code should be used? There was introduction to the equipment and time spent trying to set the child at ease.
Unfortunately this is not a billable procedure, acclimating the child to the dental office is considered inclusive of the procedure that will be preformed and not reimbursable if no procedure was performed.
