With a lot of offices shut down during this pandemic, being able to continue our dental practice has become a real challenge. 


Telemedicine has been around for a while, but not so much for dentistry. Part of it is that we all have this notion that we have to have face-to-face interaction to make it work. But we’re finding out in this COVID-19 pandemic that’s not necessarily the case. There are actually things we can handle remotely, especially with what our guest today has been doing in teledentistry for the last five years. 


Today, I want to share with you something that you could adopt in your practice right now and even post-COVID. I’m bringing in Dr. Vilas Sastry of Teledentistry.com. Through their dental practice platform, we can use technology to perform teledentistry, which eliminates the need for patients to go to the emergency room.


Dr. Vilas Sastry obviously had not predicted that a pandemic like this could happen, not in a million years – but what he predicted was a technological revolution in dentistry… and so here we are now.


As Teledentistry.com is helping us pivot our practice during this insane time, they’re offering their dental practice software for free until June 30.


In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • How teledentistry came about and how you can adopt it in your practice
  • How it works
  • HIPAA compliance and the ADA coding and billing guidelines (Find out what is not considered a consult!)
  • How you can get involved with Teledentistry in the future
