On February 19, 2010 the British Columbia Dental Association mailed out a newsletter advising of corrections that needed to be made regarding the fees for certain procedure code in the 2010 College Fee Guide.  Changing the fees in ClearDent to match the corrections set out in the newsletter is fairly simple to do.  This article will show you how to do so.

3)When the Modify Fee Schedule window appears click your mouse inside the Code Search field and type the procedure code number that you wish to change the fee for and then press the enter key on your keyboard.  For Example, type in procedure code number 02101 and then press Enter on your keyboard.  This will then bring you to that code and you will see the incorrect fee of $80.30.  Click your mouse where you see the $80.30 fee and type in the correct fee of $79.80 and then click on the ok button.  Repeat this step for the rest of the codes whose fees need to be changed.
