FAQs About Teledentistry Consultations
WHAT IS A TELEDENTISTRY CONSULTATION?
Teledentistry is a way to provide care for people without requiring a trip to the dental office.
HOW DOES TELEDENTISTRY WORK?
Our system allows us to use live two-way audio and video to view your records, examine uploaded photos and provide a virtual exam and consultation in order to make recommendations about your treatment.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING TELEDENTISTRY CONSULTATION?
The dentist will review your medical records and/or medical images. The dentist will record what he sees. Your medical and dental history and personal health information may be discussed over the video conference call.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE CONSULTATION?
Many times, a teledentistry consultation can successfully address concerns and prevent the need for a trip to the office. In other cases, the consultation may confirm the need for an emergency visit or future scheduled treatment.
HOW DO I SET UP A VIRTUAL APPOINTMENT?
Simply call our office and one of our team members will walk you through a simple process, and get you in touch with one of our doctors.
