When billing for preventive dental services, it's important to ensure accurate documentation of the services provided, including the date of service, type of procedure, tooth number (if applicable), and any relevant diagnostic information. Additionally, insurance verification should be conducted to determine coverage eligibility and any pre-authorization requirements.

Dental practices may also offer preventive service packages or wellness plans to patients, which may include a combination of preventive services at a discounted rate. In such cases, the billing process would involve applying the appropriate package or plan code and calculating any applicable discounts.
