This article will review the importance of the oral exam, demonstrating its clinical significance in oral surgery and dentistry. An appropriate method of conducting an oral exam properly will be reviewed. The importance of the oral exam with the inclusion of appropriate supplemental diagnostic studies will be discussed. Correct ICD-10-CM diagnostic codes, CPT medical descriptive codes and CDT dental procedural codes are incorporated in three case examples shown.
