Code Tip: D4341 & D4342

Common errors in reporting D4341 periodontal scaling and root planing (four or more teeth per quadrant), when there are only one to three teeth that qualify–the code for less than 4 teeth is D4342.  This code must be correctly used such as if you do consecutive teeth that go from one quadrant to another quadrant you must bill D4342 twice 7,8 upper right quadrant, 9,10,11 upper left quadrant.
