Dentulu provides teledentistry service through our apps
for emergencies, second opinions and dental consultations.
Teledentistry is a revolutionary new technology that falls under the umbrella of Telehealth. It is an emerging field meant to increase access to dentists and dental professionals through video and audio conferencing between patient and doctor. The National Telehealth Policy Resource Center defines telehealth as “a collection of means or methods for enhancing health care, public health, and health education delivery and support using telecommunications technologies.” Telehealth is not a specific service, but rather encompasses a broad variety of technologies and tactics to deliver virtual medical, health, behavioral, and education services. It is primarily a communications tool and is changing the way in which information is passed on between patient and doctor.
Teledentists can now utilize teledentistry software to video chat with patients and treat a variety of potential clients without actually being in front of the patient. This allows for fast responses to emergencies, and professional solutions to most dental/oral care problems, anytime and anywhere. Teledentists combine technology with reliable dental care to better serve the needs of a variety of patients, thereby reducing patient frustrations, wait time, mobility issues, and costs. Teledentists can now provide virtual dental visits for all dental emergencies and urgent oral/dental problems 24/7, utilizing face-to-face communication instead the hassle of sending emails or trying to speak to a receptionist for information. Patients can often resolve their immediate problems within a short amount of time and if needed, schedule next day appointments with the dentist in the office or utilize mobile dental services with companies such as Dentulu, which provide at home dental services through their mobile dental app.

Why is finding the right emergency dentist important?
Emergency dentists are very difficult to reach and most dentists do not work nights, often leaving sudden emergency patients with little to no recourse or alternative option. As such, patients will frequently end up in the emergency room for basic dental services that can be easily addressed by a dentist. Emergency rooms are often not equipped or staffed to address emergency dental patients who are consequently given pain medications and sent back to find a dentist who can help them. This repeating cycle heavily contributes to the severe and growing opioid epidemic. These patients will often return to the emergency room for more pain medication, resulting in a predisposition to opioid addiction and/or dependency.
With video consultations and virtual “facetiming” between patient and doctor, telecommunication software connects the patient’s laptop, tablet or smartphone to a virtual dentist on encrypted networks within just a few minutes. Patients will pay for the virtual consultation, and they can schedule a dedicated time period to discuss any questions and/or concerns with the dentist. The dentist is then able to send attachments, pictures, videos, and even prescriptions that can help the patient and address his/her needs.
Advanced Telehealth/Teledentistry Technology Utilized:
Patients can use intraoral cameras or their own smartphone/tablet cameras to take detailed pictures of areas of concern in their mouths, which gives dentists better visual information. Patients can also send over their x-rays from another dental office, along with notes, lists of medications, and any other pertinent information through encrypted file sharing/emails.
Dentists can use this information to more accurately diagnose the patient’s problems using advanced virtual care technology. Dentists are then able to immediately provide an e-script for pain medication or antibiotics as they see fit, or can wait until the patient has time to come to the office for a visit.
Follow-Up Care with Teledentistry Technology:
Teledentistry is not only for emergency patients, it can also be used by dentists and dental clinicians to follow up with their patients AFTER dental procedures. The dental office can now visually see the patient’s progress and assess healing by using advanced telecommunication technology, giving them a much better understanding of the patient’s postoperative status. Patients can now also take photos or videos of their healing and send the data to their dentist with just a few clicks on their smartphone, tablet or computer.
