Teledentix by Virtual Dental Care recently announced the launch of a teledentistry demonstration project, aimed at better understanding how dental practices can integrate teledentistry into everyday workflow while enhancing patient to provider interactions.

Teledentix is partnering with the California Northstate University College of Dental Medicine (CNU) to administer the teledentistry demonstration project.

The university’s Associate Dean for Research and Community Engagement, Dr. Paul Glassman, will head the demonstration project to study how dental providers across the United States use teledentistry in their practices.

Dr. Glassman and his research team are using Teledentix, by Virtual Dental Care, Inc. in this demonstration due to its comprehensive capabilities and its ease-of-use.

Teledentix teledentistry software will allow the demonstration participants to manage all aspects of their teledentistry offering, including appointment bookings, video conferencing, patient education, and asynchronous communications.

Dr. Bill Jackson, Virtual Dental Care’s Co-Founder, noted, “We’re thrilled to provide Teledentix to help evaluate just how essential teledentistry can be.”

Dr. Glassman explained, “Teledentistry is not a new concept. We have been using it to enhance access and oral health for 15 years, but it has not been widely used. Recently, however, dental providers are beginning to see the value in alternative care delivery methods. The purpose of the demonstration project is to determine how teledentistry can be optimally integrated into a traditional dental practice’s workflow, enhance practice efficiency and improve oral health.”

The research team will accomplish this goal using Teledentix to track the participants’ virtual interactions. They will also utilize the Teledentix network capabilities to share notes, meet in virtual study groups, and collaborate on a regular basis.

California Northstate University is currently accepting new participants for the teledentistry project. Dental providers who participate in the study will have access to the full suite of teledentistry management tools at a discounted monthly rate. Participants will also get access to comprehensive onboarding and training at no charge.
