What is Teledentistry?
Teledentistry is the use of telecommunications technology to provide real-time health care to patients at a distance. Teledentistry can be delivered using video-conferencing, audio communication, and/or text-messaging using mobile phones, tablets, and desktop computers.
The Doxy.me Teledentistry platform takes privacy and security very seriously by implementing state of the art security and encryption protocols to assure that data integrity and privacy is maintained. As a result, Doxy.me complies with HIPAA, GDPR, PHIPA/PIPEDA, & HITECH requirements.
Teledentistry enhances face to face dentistry. A strong doctor-patient relationship is the foundation for high-quality patient care and Teledentistry should support, not replace, traditional care delivery. Teledentistry provides the flexibility and convenience of seeing patients remotely for follow up visits, check-ups, and education when appropriate or necessary.
