Teledentistry is simply having a visit with your dentist over a video chat. This is especially valuable right now with regards to the coronavirus as it can help prevent the spread of the disease. However, you should really only be treating patients with emergencies as they will have nowhere else to turn to in today’s current climate. You should be doing everything that you can to prevent your patients from going to the emergency room as they are already overcrowded and can lead to your patient contracting coronavirus. Instead, use a teledentistry platform like PatientPop.
- Treating emergencies during this crisis is also a chance to attract new patients.
- PatientPop’s program is extremely affordable and can pay for itself with just a few patient calls. It is also very easy to learn and install.
- You have sterilization procedures to protect yourself, but now you have the ability to do teledentistry, triage those patients, and be compensated for it.
“The conventional wisdom in dentistry has been that we have to physically see the patient”
