Description

During the last three decades, the use of teledentistry has expanded as dental providers have explored innovative ways to reach patients. In the last 18 months, the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated that expansion — revealing new and creative approaches. That increased awareness and use prompted the Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors to assemble a Best Practice Approach Report to explore next steps in ensuring widespread use of teledentistry.  

In this webinar, the primary author and project members will present key takeaways for expanding the use of teledentistry, highlighting systems-level changes that need to occur. They’ll also share the process they used to create the report and examine CareQuest Institute’s strategic priorities around teledentistry that are helping to push the industry in new directions.      

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify best practices that facilitate the delivery of oral health care using teledentistry.  
  • Examine criteria to guide oral health stakeholders in developing their teledentistry best practices. 
  • Describe the methodology for creating the teledentistry best practices report.   
  • Discuss CareQuest Institute’s strategic priorities around teledentistry and how they will influence the industry.
