The TeleDentists Launch Dental/Medical Integration Program


Said to be the first dental/medical integration of its kind, the program aims to reach populations with unmet oral health needs associated with chronic illness.

The TeleDentists announced a new initiative designed to drive dental-medical integration by combining access to both physicians and dentists on their website. The program is designed to help patient populations with unmet oral health needs and associated chronic diseases improve their overall health by integrating oral health into their healthcare.

The TeleDentists is partnering with telemedicine companies to offer virtual consultations with dentists 24-hours a day, 7-days a week, nationwide. Citing research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on integrating oral and primary health, the TeleDentists created what is said to be the first dental-medical platform to be immediately accessed by providers and consumers from any platform.

With this new initiative, patients using the TeleDentists will be able to speak with a dental and/or medical professional, receive recommendations and remediation, and will be triaged to the correct specialist for in-person or virtual treatment. Furthermore, dental and medical professionals can connect with each other to provide virtual consultations and collaborate to improve their patient's oral and overall health.

Sesame Health was the first to partner with the TeleDentists to include oral health in their telehealth offerings.

“Proper oral health is vital to a productive and healthy life. Now that customers can access a dental professional at the tips of their fingers, they will be able to receive the guidance and support to not only improve their oral health but also their overall health,” Leah Sigler, president of The TeleDentists, said in a statement from the company.
