Your Dentrix Ascend practice database comes with all the current ADA Procedure Codes, which are updated automatically as needed, but you can create alias procedure codes for your organization.
Adding a procedure code to one location adds the same procedure code to the other locations of your organization. However, the default fee associated with the procedure code will be $0.00 in the other locations, so you must manually specify a default fee for the procedure code in every other location.
When you add a procedure code, Dentrix Ascend automatically adds it to every fee schedule in all locations of your organization. Additionally, the fee for the procedure code in the current location's preferred fee schedule will be the same as the procedure code's default fee. However, all other fee schedules in all locations will have a $0.00 fee for the procedure code, so you must manually specify a fee for the procedure code in every other fee schedule in every location.
