Patti DiGangi, RDH, BS believes dentistry is no longer just about fixing teeth; dentistry is indeed oral medicine with opportunities to understand the metrics that accurate procedure coding provides. In fact, the ADA recognized her expertise by inviting her to write a chapter in their CDT 2017 and 2018 Companion books. Patti holds publishing and speaking licenses with the ADA for Current Dental Terminology, 2018 as well as SNODENT, 2018 diagnostic coding. She is the author of DentalCodeology, which is a series of easy-to-read, bite-sized books. Her latest brand extension, The Dental Codeologist Community, was launched in August 2017. Dealing with dental benefits carriers, codes and coverage often leads to frustration and helplessness. Dental Codeologists have a voice and choose to shape the future of coding and healthcare.
