Our office knows that choosing a dentist near you for your family’s oral health is always an important decision, but the task can become even more daunting during these uncertain times of the COVOD-19 virus. One measure that our dentists in Shawnee, KS, have already implemented is adhering to the national and local precautions and guidelines set forth to provide safety for everyone who visits our office in person. But in addition to those protocols, we also provide teledentistry and virtual consultations near you for anyone wanting to take a more cautious approach.
It may seem at first thought that teledentistry is a new form of treatment that has resulted in specific response to COVID-19, but dentists have been approved to utilize this protocol since it was approved by the American Dental Association five years ago. It’s that same approved policy that we carry out in our Shawnee, KS dental practice that includes conveniences such as two-way interaction between you and our dentist using modern technology such as live video and other electronic communication as well as voice-to-voice telephone consultations.
What this means for you is that our dentists and team can access your oral health history and provide immediate direction in treatment for conditions such as a toothache, a dental infection, bleeding or sore gums, and more.
Safety has always been a top priority at Dental Care Shawnee, and letting you know about the availability of teledentistry, and virtual consultations near you serve as a perfect example of that commitment. Call us now to learn more about whether your condition can be treated through teledentistry in Shawnee, KS or if our dentist will need to see you in our office for an examination that requires the use of x-rays or other visual screening and treatment methods that require one-on-one care. You can even give us a call to learn how you can incorporate preventive dentistry at home until you can next make it in for an appointment for your dental cleaning.
