ADA forms task force to enhance CDT Code

The American Dental Association's Council on Dental Benefits Programs is creating a task force dedicated to enhancing its Code on Dental Procedures and Nomenclature.

The code, called CDT, establishes consistent documentation of dental procedures for claims processing and upkeep of EHRs.

The task force will ensure the CDT Code meets the current needs of dental practices. It comprises industry experts who serve on the council's advisory board and are experienced with clinical documentation, administrative transactions, and data exchange and interoperability.

The ADA's board of trustees accepted the council's proposal for the task force in July, and the task force held its first meeting Aug. 26.
