As the saying goes, “there’s an app for that” and dentistry is no exception. From studying x-rays to making appointments, we rely on apps to help us more efficiently do our jobs.

However, with the multitude of apps out there, it can be difficult to determine what deserves a download. So we’ve pulled a few from the app store that we think will make your life much easier.

CDT Code Check

Developed by the American Dental Association, the CDT Code Check app keeps the CDT codes in your hands at all times. You can search for codes by code number, keyword, and category of service and see just exactly how codes have changed year-over-year. Now you can ditch the old textbook!

BoneBox – Dental Lite
