The word ‘telemedicine’ was coined in the 1970s. Telemedicine is a form of improving the outcome of dental patients by using information and communication technology. Thus, it could be stated that when distance is a critical factor in getting oral care treatment, patients can use telemedicine to exchange information with dentists. On the same note, dentists can use this technology to exchange diagnosis and treatment plans with patients.
Telemedicine helps in the clinical support of a dental patient, for example, when a patient contacts a dentist through this medium. Since the patient has not met the dentist in-person, the treatment given by the latter is assumed as advisory. However, the patient can forward the suggestions or related reports to a clinic for further in-depth treatment. This is how telemedicine is useful in supporting clinical treatment. Moreover, telemedicine is useful in dealing with emergency situations or if a patient is in critical condition. This technology facilitates communication between patients and dental practitioners through videoconferencing and remote monitoring.
The objective of telemedicine has empowered dental patients from Los Angeles to get oral care service. It is a patient-driven communication technology that is very responsive. It has also enhanced the quality of oral health care services. Our initiative in facilitating dental care services has been successful. We have also received patients’ feedback and we are always open to take the patients’ opinions and incorporate their feedback.
In recent times, we have witnessed the resurgence of tele-dentistry and telemedicine in the American oral healthcare system. This technology has been in use mostly for preventive and emergency dental care needs. People are widely acknowledging its benefits for getting curative treatment. Moreover, it is a successful and cost-effective option in getting oral care services. In rural areas, the use of tele-dentistry is more prevalent due to easy accessibility and the fact that it comes within dental patients’ financial reach. Dentulu has been successful in integrating tele-dentistry in the lives of dental patients. Thus, tele-dentistry has yielded substantial results in oral care among people from remote areas.
Tele-dentistry is a source of employment for many dental practitioners as this technology enables them to treat a wider base of patients from everywhere in Los Angeles. This is why we are witnessing large-scale registrations for our dental app.
