Our office has initiated all COVID-19 outbreak precautions to provide safety for patients who want to visit our dentist in person, but we also provide teledentistry and virtual consultations in Overland Park, KS, for those of you who may be taking a more cautious approach in your medical appointments.
Although teledentistry may seem like a new form of treatment resulting from COVID-19, it was approved by the American Dental Association as an accepted treatment protocol five years ago. The approved policy – and the one that we use at Dental Care Antioch – includes several treatment options such as two-way interaction between you and our dentist using either live video and other electronic communication, as well as telephone.
The benefits of teledentistry and virtual consultation means that our dental care team can access your records and provide immediate assessments and direction in treatment protocols for conditions such as toothaches, dental infections, and more. If you’re wondering whether or not our dentists in Overland Park, KS can help with your dental concern through a remote appointment, please call our office to learn more.
Safety has always been paramount to our dentist office, and teledentistry and virtual consultations are an extension of that commitment to our patients. Whether you’re experiencing a dental emergency or desire assistance for any of the other multi-specialty dental services we offer, our dentist and team may be able to provide the information and treatment services you need using the latest technologies available from the comfort of your own home.
Keep in mind that there will be some limitations to this form of treatment such as an inability to take x-rays or perform in-depth oral screenings, but when you call us to make your teledentistry or virtual consultation appointment, our dental care team will be able to update you on which services are available and whether or not an in-person appointment is more suited.
The key takeaway is that we are here for your total dental care, whether it’s an in-person visit or a virtual consultation. Please call us now to learn more.
