Virtual Dental Care (VDC), the makers of Teledentix, and Cigna have teamed up to increase access to on-demand dental care, including emergency care. Through VDC’s Teledentix secure software, Cigna customers will be able to connect to a dentist via video, text, chat, and email for instant support.
Through video consultation, which is available 24/7, customers will be able to easily access care for urgent situations such as pain, infection, and swelling. The virtual dentists can also prescribe prescriptions and locate a local, in-network provider for follow-up appointments.
“Expanding our partnership with Cigna continues to solidify our footing as the most robust virtual dental solution for insurance companies and we’re thrilled to be working with such a forward-thinking organization,” added Dr. Bill Jackson, Virtual Dental Care Co-Founder and COO.
This virtual care solution is part of Cigna Dental Health ConnectTM, a suite of clinical programs designed to help employers provide meaningful dental care services tailored for their workforce.
