Drive increased access and impact without increased costs or staff

MouthWatch’s teledentistry software reduces costs and boosts the impact of oral care in public health settings. It enables hygienists and nurses to screen patients in the field, while retaining access to dentist evaluations and treatment plans through live or asynchronous input. Public health programs that adopt virtual oral health screenings can identify problems before they lead to patient discomfort, greater treatment expense or other health complications. Additionally, they can effectively serve more hard-to-reach areas such as schools, senior facilities and rural and HPSA populations.

“We were able to very quickly pivot from only providing asynchronous telehealth to offering both synchronous and asynchronous teledentistry options to our patients to serve their needs and keep in touch.”

“TeleDent has taken us to the next level and I consider it one of the greatest benefits we offer to the kids because it truly connects patients with a provider rather than just being “dropped” after their hygiene appointment. That’s one of the major arguments against independent hygiene programs is that patients get preventive help but not restorative which is ultimately the most critical care needed. MouthWatch is the answer to that missing link between the independent hygienist and the dentist. We Love it!”
