Is your practice ready to offer virtual dentistry to your patients?
Consider using virtual dentistry (also known as teledentistry) to assess your patients for non-emergency consults, as well as for diagnosing emergency situations, before they come into the office. Not only is it a smart business opportunity, but it's great for patients.
Seeing your patients just got easier. Delta Dental¹ has partnered with Amwell to offer you a free and easy-to-use teledentistry platform for virtual appointments.
Available to Delta Dental network dentists, Virtual Consult is a secure and HIPAA-compliant video platform that allows real-time face-to-face interactions with patients. You can assess, screen and provide care instructions (including e-prescriptions to manage pain and reduce risk of infection) to patients covered by Delta Dental PPO™ and Delta Dental Premier®.
Connect to Virtual Consult through your computer or on an iOS mobile device anywhere you have internet access.
