The aim of this research is to examine oral health outcomes of individuals requiring caregiver support, from the caregivers’ perspective, to assess the individual’s ability to access and utilize oral health service, explained CareQuest Institute Analytics and Data Insights team Morgan Santoro, Paige Martin, Lisa Heaton, Adrianna Sonnek, Rebecca Preston, and Eric P. Tranby in a presentation on how dental providers are using teledentistry to meet patient needs.
