Teledentistry: From Start-Up to Success

Even before we faced the realities of providing care in the era of COVID, teledentistry was emerging as a powerful opportunity for dental teams. For oral health providers working to improve oral health in underserved communities to those looking for additional ways to partner with existing patients in their private practice, teledentistry provides a new choice in care. Today, dental offices use teledentistry to triage patients, conduct pre and post-operative evaluations and manage long-term oral health concerns. During this half-day webinar, you will gain insights into teledentistry models, start-up strategies, and cases where both patients and dental teams found success in dental health.
