In continuing their efforts to expand access to telehealth services during the COVID-19 pandemic, The Teledentists have announced a new partnership with insurance company Anthem Blue Cross.

Through this partnership, Anthem will offer consumers access to dental care 24/7 through an in-network provider of virtual dentistry services from board-licensed dentists. Virtual exams will be covered at 100 percent with no deductibles, copays, paperwork, or claims to file through June 30, according to Anthem.

"Teledentistry matters now more than ever, so this is a great time for Anthem to expand its virtual oral care offering," said Scott Towers, president, Dental and Vision Business at Anthem. "Millions of Americans have been asked to stay home to slow the spread of COVID-19, but many still need access to dental care from dentists. Helping consumers get that care is our number one priority, and through this partnership with The TeleDentists, we’re proud to offer a teledentistry option that is convenient, safe, and affordable."

This online and mobile-enabled care is HIPAA compliant and requires no travel or appointments, offering patients privacy and security while practicing social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic.

Members can access teledentistry services through Anthem’s provider finder, linking them to The Teledentists website. They’ll be asked to answer a few brief medical history questions before entering a virtual waiting room, and in as little as 10 minutes, they’ll be connected to a dentist.
