Thread: New to ACS coding

  1. #1

    Cool New to ACS coding

    Promo: Code Books
    I am new to ACS coding like many others posting threads. I have been unable to find a CPT code for the surgical removal of teeth. Would I use an unlisted dental code or is there something I am missing? If several teeth are removed do you code for each one? Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    Unlisted is the correct choice. Use it once only for n number of tooth removal.
