NEW YORK, March 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- "Teledentistry is a rising trend in our profession that is here to stay," Dr. Ronald Riggins was quoted in a recent American Dental Association (ADA) article on the acceptance of teledentistry dental codes by the ADA. Dr. Riggins added: "More and more dentists are using teledentistry to provide access to care."
While studies are showing the wider health connections between oral health and overall health, Americans' access to dental care is facing increased challenges.
"After fits and starts over the last 2 decades, the time is finally right for teledentistry to take off. Dentists, health programs, and perhaps a new category of 'telehygienists' need a simple-to-set-up, cost-effective, easy to integrate, low learning-curve solution to make teledentistry really applicable to the challenges of improving oral health and widening access to care," explains MouthWatch CEO, Brant Herman.
"That's where MouthWatch TeleDent comes in. We designed TeleDent to elegantly meet practical needs for teledentistry pioneers across a diverse field of applications from private practice, to public health programs, to new career models for hygienists. And for those programs that already have telehealth infrastructure, our intraoral dental camera easily integrates for oral health evaluations and screenings."
MouthWatch will be meeting and discussing the opportunities and challenges of teledentistry with telehealth advocates, pioneers, and solution seekers at the TeleHealth 2017 Summit organized by the Mid-Atlantic Telehealth Research Center (MATRC) this April 2–4 in Leesburg, Virginia.
"Telehealth technologies," the Summit organizers points out, "offer the promise of improving what we are currently doing, but also opens the door for finding new and better ways to do it." MouthWatch is inviting you to see how this is true for their new turnkey teledentistry solution, TeleDent.
MouthWatch can be contacted for a personalized demonstration of TeleDent at mouthwatch.com or by calling (877) 544-4342.
