Teledentistry: An Adjunct for Delivering Dental Care in Crises and Beyond.

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Teledentistry can play a viable role both during a public health emergency and in everyday practice, contributing to sustaining, building, and improving dental practices as well as addressing health inequities. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has caused widespread disruptions in the delivery of dental care, Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) and the University of Washington (UW) implemented virtual care programs to help mitigate challenges associated with access to care. This article outlines a practical workflow for dentists to embark on teledentistry.
