Clinical Photographs – Optional but Useful

Clinical photographs are not currently required by Northeast Delta Dental on either pre-determinations or claims. HOWEVER, the submission of clinical photographs for claims involving restorations or mucogingival surgery are extremely useful to the dental consultants and almost always increase the likelihood that your pre-determination or claim will be favorably reviewed and decrease the likelihood that additional documentation will be requested. Digital oral photography has become very inexpensive and an integral part of many modern dental practices. Please make every effort to submit intraoral photographs when appropriate and possible.
