I work for a hospital that has a dental residency program. We have Oral Surgeons, Endodontists, and Prosthedontists that volunteer their time to come work with the residents. We have always billed 9310 when a patient needs to see one of the specialists for a consult to determine treatment and have been denied because we are not a specialty practice. What code should we be using?
