Include teledentistry in your curriculum to prepare dental students to be innovators
Introducing training in these technologies prepares students who are transitioning into practice to better serve patients, and opens their eyes to opportunities to grow their future practices. School run public clinics can also show how these technologies work with real patients.
Integration into dental workflows
Training in teledentistry prepares students to use them in future practices for patient benefit and success in dentistry.
Teledentistry allows remote dental professionals, for instance in dental subspecialties, to remotely mentor and support students.
Review case evaluations
As part of the curriculum, teledentistry with TeleDent gives students the opportunity to learn to asynchronously evaluate exam and clinical data and create visual treatment plans.
Virtual study club participation
Teledentistry allows students to participate in virtual study clubs at convenient times and places.
Through teledentistry, students can collaborate on cases with providers across the healthcare spectrum.
Developing a screenside manner
Help students prepare for both chairside and virtual patient interactions that will be part of the future landscape of providing dental and oral care.
Key benefits of combining MouthWatch camera and teledentistry solutions for dental and hygiene schools
TeleDent software and intraoral cameras can be used together to fulfill key goals of dental education.
Provide more learning opportunities
Dental schools can use TeleDent software combined with MouthWatch intraoral imaging to facilitate virtual study and learning, and as a tool to enhance the clinical training that is critical to readying students to enter the profession.
Our intraoral cameras facilitate learning by providing high quality images that enhance communications between dental students and instructors, as well as between students and dental clinic patients.
Establish intraoral imaging and teledentistry as future best practices
Dental education is constantly moving the profession and best practices forward. Teledentistry and intraoral imaging will benefit patients and the industry when schools help students see their impact and how they work together.
Schools are using MouthWatch solutions for their education goals
Leading dental and hygiene schools offer teledentistry training via TeleDent combined with intraoral camera use to prepare students for providing connected care. In classroom settings and in school public clinics or outreach programs, educational programs enabled with TeleDent are creating the next wave of dental and oral health innovators.
“We've incorporated teledentistry [TeleDent] and intraoral cameras into our dental student curriculum for 380 students. For us, it was really important to get new technologies into this curriculum so that students were exposed to it, they were aware of it, and when they go out into their professional practice, they know when someone approaches them, or they're ready to start up a new program.”
