Can you use only D0150 for comp exam for a child under 3 or do you have to use D0145?
If a patient has a primary plan either through an employer or the open market, will as supplementary plan like AFLAC or Colonial Life with no COB be listed as secondary? I just would like some clarification. COB has rules but when there is no COB some direction is helpful.
Specialist #1 referred patient to specialist #2 for a broken tooth. Oral evaluation and x-rays were taken. Tooth was extracted at the same appointment. A separate charge from the tooth extraction fee, a consultation fee of $99.was charged. That second charge was denied by insurance. Is that not the correct code? Thanks!
is there global surgical packages in the dental practice
What codes can we use if exams and cleanings were done at separate appointment? Can we use z13.84 if exam was done only?
Why would one be covered under the plan and not another

Is D7300 considered an implant?
Do two quads of D4342 qualify for D4910?
