D0170 Re-evaluation – limited problem focused (established patient; not post-operative visit)

What dental code is D0170?

D0170 is the dental code for a dental exam to follow up an existing problem (i.e. pain, injury) which did not receive prior dental treatment. It is often used as a follow-up code but should not be used as a “post-op” visit after a surgery. The code is officially known as “Re-evaluation – limited problem focused (established patient; not post-operative visit).”
