Furturedontics, Denteractive partner for teledentistry solution

Futuredontics and Denteractive partner to provide immediate after-hours care to patients via teledentistry.

Futuredontics®, the parent company of 10-800-DENTISTS®, has announced a partnership with Denteractive to provide immediate after-hours dental care to patients via teledentistry. Denteractice has one of the largest nationwide networks of teledentists available to provide immediate dental care to patients when they need it most.

Utilizing the Denteractive Teledentistry platform, Denteractive’s online dentists connect to patients in live, face-to-face teledentistry video sessions or through private text messaging to assist with all manner of dental issues on a 24/7 basis.

The teledentistry initiative allows 1-800-DENTIST to refer new patients with after-hours dental needs to Denteractive’s staff or 24/7 online dentists for immediate care, including:

  • Live face-to-face video sessions between dentists and patients via an easy-to-use smartphone app or any web browser to enable the remote management of urgent and routine dental issues.
  • Fully secure private messaging between dentists and patients to ensure easy communication for routine matters and general questions.
  • Fully secure dental records and digital file-sharing between dentists and patients.
  • Full end-to-end HIPAA compliant privacy and security.

Following assessment and diagnosis by a Denteractive teledentist, 1-800-DENTIST’s referral specialists will then personally match each patient to the most appropriate dentist for follow-up care depending on their location, diagnosis, and condition—leveraging their nationwide network comprising of thousands of member practices. Denteractive will also send other patients they care for to 1-800-DENTIST for referral to just the right dentist to meet their long-term needs.

"Our mission is to help the greatest number of people and the quality dental care they need," said Todd Daum, co-president of Futuredontics. "Partnering with Denteractive allows us to connect patients to the dental care they need when they need it, utilizing Denteractive's nationwide network of TeleDentists."

"We are very pleased to partner with Futuredontics on such an exciting initiative," said Dr. Reza Izadi, founder and CEO of Denteractive. "Our staff of 24/7 TeleDentists can provide effective dental care where and when it is most needed, and we are thrilled 1-800-DENTIST can help all of our patients and the right Dental home after we have provided initial assessment and care."
