2022 CDT Codes

The American Dental Association (ADA) has released the CDT 2022: Current Dental Terminology, which will go into effect on January 1, 2022.  You can purchase your copy here.

CDT 2022 is the only complete source of dental procedure codes used across the industry and recognized by HIPAA.  Sixteen new codes were added for 2022 and include pre-visit patient screenings, fabricating sleep apnea appliances and immediate partial dentures among others.  Changes also include 14 code revisions and six deletions.

We will post the Delta Dental Dentist Handbook with CDT 2022 in December on the secure provider portal of our website. Please note, HIPAA requires that the CDT code be used from the version in effect on the date of service. CDT 2021 is valid for services delivered through December 31, 2021.
