Professional Dentistry in the Comfort of Your Home

Do you wish you could complete your dental consultations in a more convenient way? Not sure if you absolutely need to leave the house for treatment, but still want to speak with a dentist directly? At Nelson Dental Care, high-quality dental care, top-notch customer service, and convenience are just a handful of our priorities. That’s why we have decided to incorporate virtual dental consultations to our office! If you aren’t familiar with how teledentistry works or have questions about this service, we encourage you to call our office or keep reading about virtual consults below.

What is Teledentistry?

Teledentistry is a form of remote service specifically dedicated to those looking for dental services. At the end of the day, its goal is to increase access to dentistry for those who may be living in areas far from our office or do not have access to dental care where they live. However, with an internet connection and phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer, they can speak with Dr. Nelson about their most pressing dental concerns.

Keep in mind that teledentistry is mainly for completing dental consultations. This means that Dr. Nelson can speak with you about your oral health issues and then determine what needs to be done from there, rather than ask you to come all the way to the office.

How Virtual Consults Can Help You

One of the clearest benefits of teledentistry is not having to spend large amounts of time traveling around town just to get single questions answered by a dentist. It also means that you won’t have to spend money on gas just to seek professional guidance from our office. Furthermore, patients who may be sick and are not able to leave their home due to their illness means they can still get professional help should a dental issue arise.

Since teledentistry is designed to make specifically consultations easier, they’ve proven to be particularly useful for patients seeking orthodontic or emergency dental care. For example, if you aren’t sure if you need orthodontic care for misaligned teeth or you’re dealing with dental symptoms that point to a specific dental emergency, being able to confirm it with a dentist before you even leave the house is a major benefit of teledentistry.
