Dentulu provides Teledentistry service through our apps for emergencies, second opinions and dental consultations.
Teledentistry or Tele-dentistry 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 encompasses a broad variety of technologies and tactics to deliver virtual medical, health, behavioral, and education services. Telehealth is not a specific service, but a collection of means to enhance care and education delivery. 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 and immediate responses to emergencies with professional solutions to be within reach of most patients, addressing 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 as well as costs. The Teledentists can now provide virtual dental visits for all dental emergencies and urgent oral/dental problems with 24/7 access to a dentist utilizing face-to-face communication instead of sending emails, or trying to speak to a receptionist for information. Patients can often resolve their immediate problems within a short period 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 application.

Why is finding the right Emergency Dentist is important? Cost? Time? Saving the Tooth? Scared? No Insurance? Several Questions are answered by the Dentulu app!
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 patients and address his/her needs.
Advanced Telehealth/Teledentistry technology utilized:
Patients can use intraoral cameras or their own smartphone/tablet cameras to show the dentists what their concerns are, which gives dentists enhanced details, better information and a visual look at their patient. Patients can also send over their x-rays from another dental office along with notes, list of medications, and any other pertinent information through encrypted file sharing or encrypted 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 in order to check up on them. 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 / oral health and send the data to their dentist with just a few clicks on their smartphone,tablet or computer..
