We are an Oral Surgery office and we receive many referrals from general dentist. We are now using D9310 for the initial consult. When a patient is referred for a 2nd time for a different procedure, can we use the D9310 again or should it be a limited eval D0140? Thank you!

D9310 should only be used on the initial examination where a referral was requested. If continued examinations are performed the appropriate code selection would be D0140.

Can the initial exam and extraction occur during the same appointment?
