The code on Dental Procedures and Nomenclature (CDT Code) is a set of standardized descriptions of dental procedures paired with a 5-character code. CDT Codes are a standard Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) code set, and the American Dental Association (ADA) releases annual updates for these codes.
Carestream Dental software uses CDT Codes to provide a consistent description of the procedures performed at your office to insurers and other interested parties. For additional information, see the ADA CDT Code websiteOpens in new window
Please find the appropriate update utility for the Carestream Dental product used in your office. It is important to note that some Carestream Dental practice management software does not require an update utility and uses other methods to perform CDT Code updates each year.
