Teledentistry Q & A

What is teledentistry?

Teledentistry is a branch of telehealth that relies on information technology and modern communication to facilitate virtual dental care.

This innovative tool allows the providers at Palmetto Family Dental to interact with you even when it’s not possible for you to schedule an in-person visit. 

How does teledentistry work?

Teledentistry uses a combination of electronic information and communication and imaging technologies to provide dental care services including:

Live video visit

The practice offers a secure platform through which you interact with your provider one-on-one over video. You can use these visits to report symptoms, discuss an ongoing treatment, or ask questions.

This is also a good platform for your provider to discuss your diagnosis and outline your treatment plan.

Mobile health visits

You can also talk to your provider over the phone or via email.

Store-and-forward

The store-and-forward teledentistry service allows for the secure transfer of important health information, like videos, photographs, digital impressions, radiographs, or photomicrographs, to your provider. Using this tool, they can evaluate your condition and diagnose it independently.

They can also send this type of information to you so that you can share it with a specialist.

Remote patient monitoring (RPM)

Similarly, your provider can collect personal health and medical data via secure electronic technologies. This type of information helps the team provide and support quality care.

Via teledentistry, the practice can also arrange for delivery of prescription medications and dental tools.

What are the benefits of teledentistry?

Teledentistry offers patients a myriad of benefits, including:

Improved accessibility

Teledentistry makes it possible for homebound patients, patients without reliable transportation, and rural patients to get the care they need.

Teledentistry is also a great choice for you if it’s hard to step away from work, school, or your family.

Increased affordability

Teledentistry is more affordable than in-office dentistry for a few different reasons. First, because you’re interacting with fewer people, the practice’s decreased staffing costs filter on down to you. Second, you spend less time and money on travel.

Finally, because teledentistry is more efficient, you save on lost work hours.

Decreases in-office scheduling issues

Another advantage of teledentistry is that it makes it easier for people who absolutely need in-office care, including emergency care, to get in to see a provider quickly.

In today’s world, telehealth is becoming a popular and vital service. If you’d like to schedule a teledentistry visit with your Palmetto Family Dental provider, use the online booking tool today or call the office and speak with a friendly team member.
