Dentulu is the pioneer in Mobile Dentistry Teledentistry solutions introducing the world’s first mobile Smartphone app which allows patients to search for and reserve a mobile dentist or mobile hygienist to the patient’s location. In fact, creating the best software for Mobile Dentistry was the original goal for Dentulu when launching the “Uber like” platform which automatically matches patients with mobile dental practices in their area. Dentulu’s mobile dentistry software continues to be the world’s leading mobile app providing support to mobile clinicians around the world who use the platform to find new patients, for scheduling and follow up care, presenting treatment plans, collecting payments and so much more.
Mobile dentistry is the practice of dentistry outside of the traditional dental office setting through the utilization of either portable dental equipment or mobile vans with fixed dental units. Mobile dentistry and portable dental programs are considered by many to be a relatively recent strategy in providing access to oral health services outside of the traditional brick-and-mortar dental office setting. The beginnings of mobile dental services actually date back to the early 1900s where dental hygienists were trained to provide preventative and educational oral health services to children in schools and in underserved communities.
There has been a massive influx of attention and resources in the recent several years in the area of mobile dentistry and with recent legislative changes lobbied by the American Dental Association allowing more relaxed laws on mobile dental clinicians and mid-level practitioners performing dentistry outside of the traditional dental office.
Dentulu proudly supports mobile clinicians around the world with advanced software and technology support allowing the providers to do what they do best, dentistry. Here are a list of the different ways mobile dentistry and Dentulu are helping increase access to care for millions across the world.
