Over the next few weeks, I will be sending out several important updates regarding Dentrix and industry changes that are in place or brewing. In the meantime, I have gotten several calls regarding the new fluoride code. Effective January 1, 2013 The American Dental Association procedure codes D1203 (topical application of fluoride-child) and D1204 (topical application of fluoride-adult) will become obsolete. The new procedure code that replaces D1203 and D1204 is D1208 (topical application of fluoride). For those of you using a fluoride varnish, procedure code D1206 (topical fluoride varnish) still applies. You will need to select a fee and enter this information into the procedure code set up. For Dentrix/Easy Dental customers, this also requires a change to the "initials" tab in the appointment information dialogue screen. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns regarding this change.
Onward and Upward!
