New comprehensive solution designed to transform oral healthcare and the dental patient’s care experience.
MouthWatch introduced Dentistry.One, a comprehensive virtual-first solution designed to transform oral healthcare and the dental patient care journey, at the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting, Feb. 23-25.
Built for individuals and organizations supporting patient health, Dentistry.One will feature:
“Virtual-first oral healthcare is finally made complete with Dentistry.One,” says Brant Herman, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of MouthWatch and Dentistry.One. “We create the opportunity for patients to get the care they need and deserve, when they need it, and for organizations supporting patient health to drive improved outcomes, lower costs, and an enhanced patient experience. Dentistry.One is the solution the world needs to connect more patients to care and materialize many of the benefits of medical and dental integration.”
Today’s healthcare consumers are increasingly aware of the proven impact oral health has on their overall well-being. And a growing number of consumers want a telehealth option to make accessing care more convenient, states MouthWatch. Dentistry.One will bring virtual dental care to today's busy patients through insurance plans, employer benefit packages, Dental Service Organizations (DSOs), and healthcare systems looking to further enhance the patient experience with teledentistry. Dentistry.One helps address current challenges across oral healthcare, such as staffing shortages, access limitations, and improving whole patient outcomes.
Under Herman’s leadership, MouthWatch has been a pioneering, award-winning company for more than a decade. With Dentistry.One, the New Jersey company continues its commitment to creating innovative technologies and solutions that transform how providers and patients experience dental care.
Dentistry.One dentists are highly trained to deliver the best dental telehealth experience possible, meeting patient needs such as emergencies, oral-systemic conditions, prescriptions, second opinions, cosmetic consultations, and overall preventive care. Care Advisors are described as experts in dental hygiene who will help ensure the patient has a complete care experience, including coordination of in-person dental visits, benefits navigation to help patients better understand their insurance coverage, guidance for improving home care, and recommendations for oral healthcare products and services.
In addition, Dentistry.One will provide oral health coaching services to enhance preventive care and address oral health considerations that improve overall health outcomes for patients with specific medical conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and pregnancy.
“With dental and medical care siloed for far too long, patients have carried the burden of bridging the oral systemic link in their care journeys,” Herman says. “Dentistry.One will offer a digital pathway to bridge a patient’s oral health with their overall well-being by providing exceptional and insightful care, tailored oral health education to improve oral-systemic health outcomes, and care coordination services to get patients into a dental home for treatment.”
Herman adds, “In the future, we envision further connecting a patient’s oral health to their overall health by integrating Dentistry.One with leading Electronic Health Record (EHR) platforms, so that when a patient is diagnosed with an oral-systemic disease or condition, Dentistry.One can simultaneously help the patient begin a better oral care journey.”
Dentistry.One is launching with its first clients in March, with the national rollout planned to begin in April.
MouthWatch is widely known for its intraoral cameras that help engage patients in treatment planning through high quality, affordable imaging technology, and its TeleDent software that provides practices and organizations with a teledentistry option to engage patients with providers remotely. MouthWatch hardware and software is in use at over 40,000 practices, over 30 leading Dental Service Organizations (DSOs), and over 100 dental schools, according to the company.
