Telemedicine is becoming more and more popular, from hotline nurses to virtual consultations, and it’s not just because of COVID-19. There are so many perks to having online dental appointments for your health and dental care!
In this blog, we’ll explain everything you need to know about teledentistry.
Teledentistry allows you to consult with your dentist without having to go into the dental office physically!
Most telehealth systems hold these appointments over the phone, via a messaging app, or through a live or recorded video consultation.
Some dentists require a fee. Depending on your insurance policy and how your dentist bills the appointment, you may be covered.
Teledentistry isn’t limited to a specific service, and it can vary depending on the provider. Common uses include:
If you consult with your current dentist, he/she may be able to use your dental records for more accurate feedback.
There are many ways to conduct a virtual dental appointment.

Teledentistry has so many benefits and conveniences! Here’s why our patients love virtual dental care in Salt Lake City:
You can easily hop on your device from home or work and get your answers without having to drive anywhere! Plus, you don’t have to take time off of work to get the same service you could at home.
Currently, our emergency dental consultations are free of charge. This will save you a lot of money in comparison to driving to and from, taking time off work, and visiting an emergency dentist or hospital.
And it doesn’t get much cheaper than complimentary virtual dental consultations for cosmetic dentistry or consultation for improving color texture of your teeth.

By holding appointments that don’t require physical treatment via teledentistry, we can help prevent the spread of any disease.
