The TeleDent teledentistry platform is now available to Henry Schein and Henry Schein One customers.
Henry Schein is now offering TeleDent by MouthWatch, a teledentistry and patient engagement platform that incorporates live video conferencing, patient messaging, and cloud collaboration, the company announced in a press release.
The TeleDent platform will be available to customers through Henry Schein Dental and Henry Schein One, so practitioners can conduct emergency triages, consultations, pre-visit screenings, post-op visits, and visual case presentations virtually. Using TeleDent, dentists can connect with patients through a desktop or mobile device, and their consultations can be recorded for integration into clinical care and patient records.
“Dental practices are rapidly implementing new solutions to provide patient care during the COVID-19 pandemic, and TeleDent is truly a comprehensive solution that allows our customers to provide safe, efficient care for their patients,” said Jonathan Koch, senior vice president and CEO, Henry Schein Global Dental Group and Interim CEO, Henry Schein One. “With TeleDent’s simple, collaborative platform, our customers can seamlessly integrate teledentistry into their practice workflow.”
The patient-facing messaging included in TeleDent’s platform is designed so practitioners can communicate directly with patients, as well as seamlessly collaborate and share diagnostic information with their dental team and specialists in a cloud-based portal. The dental team can also easily transition patients to a specialist and see their task assignments within the TeleDent platform.
“We developed TeleDent to help dental professionals serve their patients anytime, anywhere, and it’s now more important than ever that dentists are able to provide care safely and efficiently,” said Brant Herman, CEO of MouthWatch. “We’re very excited to introduce TeleDent to Henry Schein Dental and Henry Schein One customers to promote the wide-spread adoption of teledentistry during a time when safely connecting providers with patients is of the utmost importance.”
