On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Coding Edition with Teresa Duncan, MS Teresa gives us a breakdown of code D4355. Knowing how and when to use the debridement code is important! Please listen as Teresa explains the clinical conditions that we should be seeing and the administrative considerations to think about.
“If you are able to take good oral images before and after the debridement, those are great.”
“Make sure you have the patient’s permission to use those images.”
“Full mouth debridement involves the preliminary removal of plaque and calculus that interferes with the ability of the dentist to perform a comprehensive oral evaluation. Not to be completed on the same day as D0150, D0160, or D0180.”
