As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to impact our nation, teledentistry allows dental professionals the ability to see vulnerable dental patients while eliminating the risk of infection for staff and patients. When the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began warning of the increased likelihood of person-to-person spread of COVID-19, Precision Digital Dentistry knew that we would have to take steps to protect everyone in our dental practice. We are proud to offer teledentistry appointments for patients who need virtual consultations.
The American TeleDentistry Association (ATA) has recommended that dental practices use teledentistry platforms to evaluate and care for patients. This platform allows dentists to meet with patients virtually over a computer or smartphone to provide them with the assistance they need. At Precision Digital Dentistry, we have already helped numerous patients by diagnosing symptoms and concerns without the patients ever having to leave the safety of their homes.
While all patients should feel confident calling the dentist in a dental emergency, Precision Digital Dentistry is also offering virtual consultations for dental implants and orthodontics. Without knowing when the “all clear” will be given and everyone will be allowed to go back to their daily routines, and without knowing how long it will be until you can reschedule an appointment, it is comforting to know that your needs can still be met during this time.
Dr. Joyce Guojun Ma is dedicated to providing for the needs of her patients throughout this unprecedented time. Through the achievements of modern technology, Dr. Ma can offer virtual consultations to patients who are interested in dental implants, orthodontics, or who are suffering from dental complications right now. Through teledentistry, patients can send photos, videos, or be on live calls for evaluation. Patients can call in and describe symptoms of pain or infection and get a prescription through a teledentistry appointment. Teledentistry also represents a safe and cost-effective way for patients to have their dental treatments monitored when getting to the dentist is almost impossible right now.
At Precision Digital Dentistry, we are here for you. Our teledentistry services will provide you with the care that you need. Please do not feel that you must suffer through this time. Call us at any time or set up an appointment online at www.precisiondigitaldentistry.com for teledentistry services.
