ATLANTA—Doctors who use Carestream Dental’s digital imaging and practice management solutions will soon have greater access to the TeleDent teledentistry platform from MouthWatch thanks to a new partnership.
As seen in recent weeks, the coronavirus makes it extremely difficult to see patients directly in the office. However, having the ability to connect remotely with patients is an ideal way to communicate without the close physical contact. Teledentistry* provides an easy alternative for patients to connect and receive timely help and professional advice.
The TeleDent solution makes it possible for existing patients to contact the office if they have a question or dental emergency. The platform enables live streaming video consultations to facilitate remote treatment planning, supervision and collaboration in real-time and asynchronously at the provider’s convenience.
“Carestream Dental is excited to be partnering with MouthWatch and their innovative TeleDent software.” Ed Shellard, D.M.D., chief dental officer, Carestream Dental, said. “This partnership helps deliver a much-needed solution in light of the COVID-19 pandemic so practices can interact with patients remotely.”
“At MouthWatch, we believe in providing market leading solutions,” Brant Herman, MouthWatch founder and CEO, MouthWatch, said. “Collaborating with a partner, such as Carestream Dental, enables us to do just that. Their technological expertise aligns with our commitment to providing practices with turnkey teledentistry solutions.”
