This excerpt taken from “Different Types of Cleanings”
“There are designated procedure codes for every dental procedure performed. And in the world of dental hygiene, there are 5 hygiene codes we use to indicate exactly what procedure is performed. Often, the challenge for the hygiene coordinator can be to help the patient understand their treatment needs.
Many dental patients have no idea that there are different classifications and procedure codes for their dental “cleanings”. Much of our role, as the office hygiene coordinator, may be to help our patients understand the care they receive. And to help our patients see their treatment needs are unique to them. And that they are worth it!
The better our communication is with our patients at the time of diagnosis, the more successfully we see them schedule treatment. But even patients who have received regular dental care for years, may not truly understand the levels of care offered for their “cleanings”. Or that a few “missed” years could be the reason they need a little more care today than they did 5 years ago. And then there is aging and periodontal disease to consider too.
By now, you have probably guessed, that there is no such thing as “just a cleaning”.
So, before we get into just how we can help our patients understand this, let’s make sure we get it ourselves first!”
