Toronto (July 2020) – DENTIST ONLINE, a brand new teledentistry platform, has launched, heralding a new virtual health experience in Canada. Offering turn-key solutions for a variety of dental needs, Dentist Online
features independent dentists and oral experts from 96 clinics across the country, including denturists and dental specialists such as Orthodontists, Oral and Maxiofacial Surgeons, Periodontists and Endodontists, Prosthodontists, and Peadodontists.
Making up one of Canada’s most experienced dental health offerings, Dentists Online provides remote consultations with dental professionals for oral care advice or treatment for concerns, such as tooth aches, a chipped tooth, crown issues, or jaw pain. Acting as a triage service with wait times of less than 5 minutes, teledentistry with Dentist Online reduces unnecessary visits and directs patients to an in-person appointment only when needed.
Dr. Marangos, Dentist at Altima Coxwell Dental Centre – “Being part of this digital era in dentistry was a no-brainer. We want to make dental care accessible to all Canadians and increase the quality of care for patients while improving efficiency and lessening the burden on the already stretched health care system.”
“In addition to being equipped with virtual dentistry tools and continuing education, we are part of an exceptional network of oral health providers who love to make a difference in dentistry. Pivoting through the pandemic and global changes, we have seen great success with innovations and managed to take care of patients away from physical locations.”
Dr. Barry Dolman, Director of Clinical and Regulatory Affairs at Altima Dental and Past President of the International Society of Regulators, among others – “By delivering direct connection to a professional with an interactive tool we facilitate communication and respond rapidly to where and when patients are impacted. We’ve already received heartwarming feedback from our patients and staff regarding how practical it is to use Dentist Online.”
Dentist Online plans to launch additional features on its website, such as key resources for patients on the safety measures put in place in dental clinics post COVID-19 lockdown as well as a dentist directory.
Dentist Online was created in 2020 to help Canadians safely access dental care at the ready. By partnering with dentists across the country, Dentist Online provides virtual care appointments as well as a directory of clinics for in-person appointments at over 96 locations in Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and Nova Scotia. The platform’s purpose is to make dental care safe and accessible in Canada and increase the quality of care for patients while improving the efficiency of the health care system.
