Dental consultation provides you a better idea of your oral health by visiting your dental care provider where you can discuss your issues, concerns, and treatment options. Each consultation is different depending on one’s needs. They include taking X rays, examining the dental history and performing an examination, in addition to cleaning.
D0160 is only reported when the dentist provides an opinion or advice for a patient who was specifically referred by a physician, dentist, or other appropriate source. There must be a formal referral from another practitioner or appropriate source to report code D0160.
