Non-traditional Treatment Locations
Most routine preventive services and dental exams do not require a dental office. Hygienists and other dental auxiliaries, using mobile equipment, can come to any location where people live, work, and gather. For some patients, on-premise treatment is a necessity, for others, it is a wonderful convenience. Below are some examples of how teledentistry is currently used.
Mobile hygienists with specialized teledentistry equipment can set up temporary treatment areas in almost any building that has access to the internet.
They bring dental care to people wherever they live or gather. Examples are:
- After-school programs
- Community Centers
- Common-area living facilities
- And more
Good oral health is a requirement for good general health. Chronic gum disease has been shown to be associated with hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer’s disease. Yet, less than 45% of seniors receive routine dental care, because too often, it is difficult to access a dental office and the fees are high. Virtual Dental Care arranges for preventive and diagnostic services where seniors live and gather. Bringing treatment directly to them alleviates the need to go to dental office for most patients. If further treatment is required, we arrange for an in-office appointment, or if necessary, an in-home visit by a mobile dentist.
People have become accustomed to in-home visits from various healthcare professionals: nurses, day-care workers, physical therapists, etc. In some cases, it is necessary. In other cases, it is a wonderful convenience. Why not have cleanings and exams performed in the comfort of one’s home?
