The rapid adoption of teledentistry has brought the opportunity for innovative practice models to light! More than a public health option, teledentistry is transforming dentistry with innovative care delivery options for all. Mobile programs provide greater efficiency for patient care with far reaching potential and income opportunities. The dental marketplace is changing as patients are discovering the convenience and effectiveness of telehealth and teledentistry services, thus seeking a teledentistry provider. Dental providers are discovering more autonomy and adopting alternative care practices to increase reach and revenue. This interactive workshop will delve into the legislative considerations, ROI opportunities, clinical techniques, business models and more, all with the goal of preparing attendees to move forward with mobile and teledentistry services. The workshop will conclude with an interactive panel discussion.
