Teledentistry’s beginnings focused on addressing the underserved. Specially trained hygienists take mobile equipment into community or rural settings, perform preventive services and gather diagnostics, and transmit data into a cloud-based patient record. A licensed dentist then views the cloud-based records and creates a treatment plan, including arrangements for an in-office appointment where needed.
Teledentistry and its goals have evolved since its beginnings to include increasing patient convenience, enhancing peer-to-peer communications, and generally helping the entire dental industry reach a higher level of patient care through better collaboration. All of these goals, however, still align perfectly with that original mission of teledentistry by helping to expand access to quality dental care.
