What is a Teledentistry Consultation?
Teledentistry is a way to provide care for people who do not or cannot go to a dentist's office. Teledentistry uses electronic dental records such as electronic versions of X-rays, photographs, recordings of the condition of your teeth, health and other history information. These records are reviewed at a later time. These records or other electronic communications are known as "store and forward" records. The goal of the teledentistry system is to have the dentist create recommendations for you for dental care.
