CDT Codes

CDT (Current Dental Terminology) codes are a set of codes that are used in the dental industry as a standard coding system that identifies specific dental procedures and services. These codes are maintained by the American Dental Association and are recognized by insurance companies to help ensure that dental services are accurately reported and reimbursed. 


It is highly recommended that you take note of CDT codes and internalize them. Over time, you will come to learn them as if they are a separate language. However, this takes time! In the meantime, please look over the list below of the different CDT code categories. Feel free to write them down if it helps you learn quicker.
