During this year’s RDH Under One Roof Meeting (August 2-3) Patti DiGangi, RDH, BS, a prominent dental hygiene thought leader, will be celebrating the one-year anniversary of The Dental Codeologist Community Member Program, which she launched during last year’s RDH UOR.

According to DiGangi, “The Dental Codeologist Community is a brand extension of my DentalCodelogy™ book series that takes a “member’s only approach” to providing dental professionals with the latest news and tips credits regarding dental procedure coding. After just one year, we have hundreds of members with more coding-minded dental professionals joining us every day.”

What’s more, in addition to many other member benefits, the $99.00 annual dues provide a 40% discount on all titles in the Dentalcodeology book series, including these two new invaluable reference resources that that Patti will be debuting at RDH UOR:

• Teledentistry: Pathway to Prosperity - A Critical Decisions Workbook Co-authored by Cindy Purdy, RDH

Teledentistry is a rising trend and an expansion of the traditional dental practice.
Patients can have a virtual dental home in addition to a physical one. Teledentistry can increase quality of care and practice revenue streams by providing profitable
outreach to the community without adding more chairs. As this book title indicates, there are many critical decisions to create your pathway to teledentistry prosperity.

• CDT 2018 Shift: Metrics Driven - Including 2018 Perio Protocols® Flow Charts and CDT 2014-2015 Shift

The CDT Code changes every year for many reasons, including technology or materials that have led to new procedures, or the need to improve clarity and accuracy of already existing codes. In this book, Patti reviews the new, updated, and deleted code changes for 2018. This book contains:

• Substantive Changes CDT 2018
• CDT Shifts 2014-2017
• SOAP documentation
• Includes the just-released Classifications of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions 2017
• Writing Twitter-style Dental-Medical with samples

This book also includes 2018 Updated Protocols.  If you think you already know the right codes, you might not be coding the most effectively. This bonus resource keeps you the most up-to-date. 

Dental Codeologist Members who attend RDH UOR 2019 will also be able to attend an exclusive breakfast meet-up on Friday, August 3rd where Patti will also be signing her two new books.
