Dental cleaning

  1. Default Dental cleaning
    Medical Coding Books
    I have a patient who has cerebral palsy and a permanent G-tube. Procedure done was scaling of all calculus, dental prophylaxis and topical application of fluroide varnish.
    Diagnosis I am looking to use is V07.8, 441.1 and 373.9. I am thinking that this was preventative. Is this correct?

    Thank you

    In have been researching and I think that I may have found a more appropriate code 523.6
