ADA seeks feedback for proposed CDT code changes

The American Dental Association's Enhanced CDT Task Force is seeking dentist input on proposed changes that would compliment the current coding format. 

The CDT Code has not had a structural update since it was first published in 1969, according to a Nov. 8 news release. The proposal includes adding a two-character modifier to the code's "Dxxxx" format. These modifiers would add details such as materials, techniques and technologies used in procedures, according to Stacey Gardner, DMD, vice chair of the Council on Dental Benefit Programs and chair of the task force. 

Deadline for submitting feedback to the task force is March 2023.
