Teledentistry is an innovative way to provide oral health services to children and families, particularly those who face barriers related to mobility, transportation, and/or distance to a nearby provider. As California communities and providers adjust to changes in daily life in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, it becomes particularly crucial to expand and leverage the use of Teledentistry to meet the oral health needs of Californians. During this webinar you will learn what Teledentistry is, how to implement Teledentistry in your practice, and hear tips for educating patients about Teledentistry services. This webinar will also discuss current policy opportunities to promote Teledentistry across the state.
