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.

Remote monitoring

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.

Interdisciplinary education

“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.”
