Virtual Consultation Request

What is a virtual (teledentistry) consultation?

Teledentistry is the use of electronic information, imaging, and communication technologies, including interactive audio, and video to provide and support a virtual consultation. Teledentistry is a way to provide care for an individual who may not be able to make a in person appointment at this time. The dentist will make recommendations about your treatment using your electronic dental records and health and other history information. These records or other electronic communications are
known as “store and forward” records. The goal of the teledentistry system is to provide you with information based on your dental care needs.

What happens during teledentistry consultation?

The provider will examine your electronic dental records if provided. That person will record what she/he sees. Your medical and dental history and personal health information may be discussed with other health professionals. These discussions will occur through phone calls or “store and forward” technology. A teledentistry consultation may require an in-person examination visit.

What are the risks, benefits and alternatives?

Benefits of a virtual consult will provide access to a dentist without having to travel to a dental office. A potential risk of a virtual consult may still require a in person examination with the dentist at the dental office. An in-office visit may be necessary, because of specific medical and/or dental conditions or other circumstances. Recommendations will be made about your future dental care after the virtual consultation. These could include recommendations about whether to see a dentist in a dental office. A visit to a dental office may be needed in the future if it is not recommended at this time. The recommendations may change if more information about your dental needs becomes known. The alternative to a virtual consultation is a in person visit with a dentist at the dental office.

The practice of dentistry is not an exact science. Therefore, any specific results cannot be guaranteed.

Patient Rights : You may choose not to participate in a virtual consultation at any time before and/or during the consultation. If you decide not to participate, it will not affect your right to future care or treatment. You have the option to seek an in person visit at the dental office any time before or after the virtual consultation.
