How Can You Benefit from Telemedicine?

Posted by SHEFFIELD SQUARE DENTAL CARE on Jun 2 2020, 06:58 AM

When getting dental care, many patients experience stress about hidden fees and high-priced services. Virtual dentistry offers a more convenient and affordable way to receive the dental treatments you need to stay healthy. Appointment times are flexible, allowing you to choose a time that works best for you without worrying about missing work or class. You can ask questions during your consultation and receive answers right away without having to wait for a phone call or email response. 


Since telemedicine visits take place online, patients are not required to travel anywhere for care. This is especially beneficial for patients who have a difficult time getting around or those who are simply too sick to go to their appointment in person. With telemedicine, we’re able to provide ongoing care for patients no matter where they are.

Telemedicine is also helpful for patients who have busy lifestyles. They don’t have to take off work or make other accommodations to visit us in the office. Instead, they can receive treatment at their convenience – whether that means during their morning commute or while they’re relaxing at home. For patients with schedules that change daily, this is a huge benefit and something that traditional dentistry doesn’t provide.

Patients with mobility issues also benefit from telemedicine. Patients who are confined to a wheelchair can still receive the dental treatment they need without having to leave their house. Although we offer transportation to and from our offices as needed, it still can be very difficult for some patients who are wheelchair-bound to get to us without assistance. The convenience of telemedicine makes it much easier for them to receive the dental care that they need.


Your out-of-pocket cost can go down significantly when you receive treatment through telemedicine. Some dentists even offer a flat fee for service, so you don’t have to worry about surprises on your bill. You also won’t have to drive to and from your appointments, which is not only time-consuming but also comes with a high gas expense. With teledentistry, you can save time and money!


Telemedicine is also helpful when it comes to scheduling appointments during busy times like the holidays or summer vacations. Your dentist’s office may have fewer appointment spots available than usual during these times of the year, and you may not have time to wait to get an appointment. With telemedicine, you don’t have to worry about long wait times when you need to schedule an appointment. 


Telemedicine can improve the quality of care you receive. Many patients report that they feel more comfortable when they have a dentist in the room with them. However, this isn’t always possible. For instance, if a patient is in a remote location or otherwise unable to visit you in person, telemedicine provides a way to reach them and provide quality care. This can also help with emergency situations when a patient needs immediate treatment. Also, as technology advances, it is possible that dentists will be able to perform more procedures remotely without the need for an office visit.
