Do you need ICD-10-CM training to work as a medical coder and biller for a dental practice?

Reporting ICD-10-CM codes appropriately requires knowledge of ICD-10-CM coding. Dental coders must understand all coding guidelines, in addition to the conventions to select diagnosis codes accurately.

Among more than 73,000 codes in the ICD-10-CM code book, roughly 750 directly apply to dentistry. These codes provide the ability to capture descriptive information for various types of patient encounters and clinical conditions.
