MouthWatch, LLC, a leader in innovative teledentistry solutions, digital case presentation tools and intraoral imaging devices, has recently added significant new features to its award-winning TeleDent™ all-in-one teledentistry platform designed to further balance its provider and patient benefits.
Long regarded as an industry leader in secure, dentist-directed, patient-friendly teledentistry, the latest release of TeleDent expands the mutual benefits of the virtual provider-patient experience.
Brant Herman, founder and chief executive officer of MouthWatch, shared: “During the height of the pandemic, we experienced a tremendous number of signups and inquiries for TeleDent. This provided us with an opportunity to gain valuable feedback from a new group of clinicians and patients. The result was the development of enhanced features designed to improve the dental health experience on both sides of the dental encounter.”
The main enhancements to TeleDent include the following:
- Online Patient Intake Form: Patients can now easily request a teledentistry consultation through an online TeleDent request form which can easily be added to a dental practice’s website
- Mobile Patient Portal Access: TeleDent now makes it easier for patients to access the patient portal on their mobile phones. They can easily use the portal to schedule a live virtual consult or message the practice. A mobile app is also available for patients, but not required
- Dental Team Texting: Dental professionals can send text messages for patient portal registrations or to invite patients to join virtual consults. Email is still an option but not a requirement
- Virtual Dental Team Support: Team members can now use their smartphones to manage the practice’s TeleDent account directly, including user management, billing tools, and custom practice branding. Dental team members can also access training and education resources through the TeleDent Learning Centre anytime, anywhere
“These newest enhancements will further establish TeleDent as the professional grade teledentistry platform that also delivers the safety, convenience and efficiency that patients and dental teams alike will appreciate,” added Herman.
