On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH talks to us about weird facts, highlighting the prophylaxis code distribution.
“However, as you may suspect in this age category, 95.4% of those individuals were treated with a D-1110 prophylaxis procedural code, meaning the remaining 4.6% of individuals were treated with any other procedural code.”
“My hope is that in sharing facts like this that it creates a greater awareness for the dental clinician about the responsibility we have to identifying disease, educating our patients on it and treating it while it is in its earlier stages. While, it is cheaper, easier, more pain free for us to treat.”
