2023: Beyond the Screen: How Dental Providers are Using Teledentistry to Meet Patient Needs

Published 11/21/2023

We know little about how oral health professionals are using teledentistry in day-to-day dental practice in the aftermath of a global pandemic, explained CareQuest Institute Analytics and Data Insights team Kelly Schroeder, Morgan Santoro, Paige Martin, and Eric P. Tranby in a presentation on how dental providers are using teledentistry to meet patient needs. 

The study concluded: Synchronous video teledentistry is not accessible for all populations or all dental clinic capacities. Policy that supports a broad spectrum of mode and type of teledentistry dental delivery is imperative for teledentistry to continue as a tool to reduce barriers to oral health care and to improve patient oral health outcomes.
