Dental providers who successfully enhance their practice with teledentistry adopt resources that make the teledentistry software work for them and their patients.
Accommodating Appointment Requests
Traditionally, a patient calls your office to request a dental visit, whether it is in-person or virtual. The administrative staff then takes all the demographic information from the patients, including the reason for the visit. To this day, it proves to be a tried-and-true method, however many dental practices offer the option to schedule dental visits online. With a phone in hand and an internet connection, adopting an online scheduler and an appointment request form improves convenience–and it can be done from nearly anywhere.
Online Patient Forms
TeleDent’s cloud-based software offers the opportunity to incorporate a Patient Intake Form into your website or selectively share the web link with patients who are requesting a virtual visit. Once completed by a patient, the TeleDent software notifies the dental office of the request for a visit, including automatically adding the patient into TeleDent, and allowing them to set up a patient portal.
What Information is Included?
As a patient completes the intake form, it includes demographic information to be added into TeleDent. The information required to submit an appointment request is the name, date of birth and contact information. In addition, it captures the reason for the visit, symptoms and allows the patient to upload images.
Patient intake forms are just one of many amenities TeleDent has to offer. Streamlining the scheduling process make virtual visits more convenient for patients and providers.
