Another question about code D9951 (Occlusal Adjustment – Limited). If the doctor does both upper and lower adjustments in one visit, should it be entered twice or does this code cover upper or lower as well as upper and lower? Thanks!

This code is to be used on a per visit basis, some carriers will allow for it to be billed per quadrant while others consider it to be a one time billable charge. You need to review your carrier contracts for exact usage.
