How Can Virtual Dental Visits Help?
Our dentists can answer questions, provide advice, prescribe appropriate medication, and refer patients to a specialist when needed. They can help patients determine whether they have a serious condition that requires urgent treatment, or if there are things they can do to help alleviate symptoms at home until it's safe to get to their regular dentist. In addition to helping with toothaches and infections, people may ask the Virtudent dentist about oral healthcare situations such as what to do if they have trouble with a crown or filling, break a tooth or bridge, have tooth sensitivity or discoloration, notice sores or open lesions, experience soreness or discomfort while chewing, or grind and clench their teeth.
Why Is Teledentistry Critical Right Now?
During this exceptional time, traditional dental offices are being advised to close for non-emergency procedures. Emergency rooms may soon be overwhelmed by patients. Even in normal circumstances, emergency rooms are often not set up to diagnose and address dental issues. A teledentistry consultation is an effective alternative that can help you avoid an unnecessary trip outside your home or emergency room visit — potentially freeing up medical resources, saving you hundreds of dollars, and helping you avoid exposure to the coronavirus.
How Much Does It Cost?
During the coronavirus crisis, we will be doing everything we can to limit out-of-pocket costs. If you have dental insurance, we will bill your insurance provider for a limited oral evaluation. If you don’t have coverage, the cost of the visit will be a discounted rate of $49. You can pay by credit card, Venmo or your FSA/HSA card.
