Tele dentistry allows you to consult with your dentist without having to go to the dental office physically. The consultations are done over the phone, via a messaging app or through a live video consultation.
This is the way how dentistry is now meeting this new challenge of the pandemic COVID-19 with increased efficiency, reach and has a greater impact by connecting to your dentist in case of an emergency or for a consultation.
Like the other healthcare professionals are taking their precautions, dentists too are working out all options at their disposal to provide dental care to those in need without exposing them to unnecessary risks and expenses.
With simple tools like smartphones and laptop webcams, dentists can see most dental patients safely in their homes, thereby eliminating their risk of infection.
The use of tele-dentistry is emerging as a practical solution in emergency aid, initial consultation, and expert opinion which improves access to oral health services in areas with inadequate availability of general and specialty dental care.
How does a Tele dentistry consultation work?
Tele dentistry consults are done over video conferencing.
As soon as you make an appointment, you are provided with a link, which you can access on your internet/ Wi-Fi enabled mobile device, tablet, laptop or a computer. At your appointment time, you and your dentist can join the video call to begin the consultation.
