Dental Procedure Code Training Plan
Dental procedure code training is an integral part of dental front office training.
It’s best to begin with a list of your specific procedure codes that are most used. You may want to print a procedure code analysis to help you.
Then, copy and paste the dental procedure codes with definitions to your office reference guide to include scheduling preferences as well.
Comprehensive Exam With X-Rays
My preference is to start training with the comprehensive exam and full mouth series. This allows me to talk briefly about how patients enter the practice and phone management.
Because new patient scheduling is a big responsibility of our front office team, I spend a great deal of time on this. With both the conversation management and scheduling.

Dental Procedure Code Training for Dental Emergencies
Next, I like to move onto dental emergency phone calls and procedure codes.
What codes do you use for dental emergency exams? Then, train your team exactly what to ask and information to gather.
Finally, show your new team members how to schedule your dental emergencies.
