PRESS RELEASE UPDATED: AUG 21, 2020
LOS ANGELES, August 21, 2020 (Newswire.com) – Futuredontics®, the parent company of 1-800-DENTIST® – the dental profession’s #1 source of pre-screened new patient leads, announced details of a partnership with Denteractive to provide immediate after-hours dental care to patients via Teledentistry.
Since 1986, 1-800-DENTIST has helped connect more than nine million new patients to dental practices across the country. Denteractive has one of the largest nationwide networks of TeleDentists available to provide immediate dental care to patients when they need it most. Utilizing the innovative Denteractive Teledentistry Platform, their online dentists connect with patients in live face-to-face Teledentistry video sessions or through private text messaging to assist with all manner of dental issues on a 24/7 basis.
The Teledentistry initiative, announced today, allows 1-800-DENTIST to refer new patients with after-hours dental needs to Denteractive’s staff of 24/7 Online Dentists for immediate care including:
- Live face-to-face video sessions between dentists and patients via an easy-to-use smartphone app or any web browser to enable the remote management of emergency, urgent and routine dental issues.
- Fully secure private messaging between dentists and patients to enable easy communication for routine matters and general patient questions.
- Fully secure dental records and digital file sharing between dentists and patients.
- Full end-to-end HIPAA compliant privacy and security.
Following assessment and diagnosis by a Denteractive TeleDentist, 1-800-DENTIST’s referral specialists will then personally match each patient to the most appropriate dentist for follow-up care depending upon their location, diagnosis and condition and leveraging their nationwide network comprising thousands of member practices. Denteractive will also send other patients they care for to 1-800-DENTIST for referral to just the right dentist to meet their long-term needs.
“Our mission is to help the greatest number of people find the quality dental care they need,” said Todd Daum, Co-President of Futuredontics. “Partnering with Denteractive allows us to connect patients to the dental care they need when they need it, utilizing Denteractive’s nationwide network of TeleDentists.”
