Hello,I would like to know if the dentist states that he performed D9971 on teeth #8 and #9 do you charge the code D9971 one time for both teeth involved or per tooth? Thank you! Have a nice holiday.

You would charge this code one time as the code description clearly states (odontoplasty 1-2 teeth), since you have two teeth involved and they are side by side you would get this code one time only.
