Virtual dental consultations in Middletown, IN
In today’s ever-changing world, technology is fulfilling more purposes. Now medical and dental appointments can happen via phone, tablet, or computer. Our main concern is the health and safety of our patients. With virtual dental consultations, the team at Titus Dentistry in Middletown IN is available to discuss your dental needs without even leaving the comfort and safety of your home.
Uses of online consultations
An online dental consultation is a video appointment that is performed through a secure internet website. Also called teledentistry, this practice allows patients to reach the dentist through real-time video conferencing or by sending photographs via a phone call or webcam. Just like an in-office appointment, you can take this time to discuss any concerns, needs, or goals. The virtual medical consultation aims to get the conversation flowing. Obviously given the nature of the consult, x-rays, in-depth exams, and actual procedures are not possible.
To continue with our efforts to meet our patients’ needs, online appointments may be offered when patients do not necessarily need a physical exam. Our dental team may use a web platform for limited exams, virtual case consultations, post-op appointments, and “meet the doctor” appointments. During your scheduled virtual medical consultation, Dr. Titus can discuss your concerns, your dental options, and the best course of treatment available to meet your needs.
Advantages of virtual consultations
Some of the benefits of online dental consultations include the following:
- Less exposure – With concerns about spreading germs, there are no worries about being exposed to unnecessarily.
- No transportation time or costs – To get to an in-office appointment, you have to allow extra time and money to travel to and from the office. During a virtual medical consultation, you do not need to leave the comfort of your home.
- No need to facilitate child or elderly care – If you are responsible for taking care of children or older adults, it can be difficult to facilitate care or to bring them with you to appointments. Virtual appointments allow you to speak with your dentist while tending to your responsibilities.
