CDT Codes / ADA License

The ADA license allows us to include the ADA (CDT) procedure codes for distribution within the United States only.  As required by the ADA CDT content license, every U.S. customer of Open Dental Software must fill out and return a CDT Compliance form.  This form discloses in writing the number and location of all "End-User Sites" that use the software, and thus the CDT codes. 

To download new CDT codes, see CDT Codes Update

What locations are considered "United States"?
The ADA license specifically addresses this as follows:  "The U.S. version of Open Dental may be distributed in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealths of Puerto Rico, and the Northern Mariana Islands or any territory of the United States." 

Based on this wording, the following locations are considered within the U.S. for licensing purposes:

  • 50 States
  • Washington DC
  • Puerto Rico
  • Northern Mariana Islands
  • Guam
  • US Virgin Islands
  • American Samoa

Countries not included in this list must arrange their own purchase of CDT codes and ADA claim forms.
