Virtual Consultations – Are they here to stay?

21st August 2020 | | Marketing

Technology has improved so much especially when it comes to dealing with healthcare. Video consultations between Dentist and patient are increasing given the current COVID-19 situation. A virtual consultation is a convenient and safe way to get access to a dentist without leaving your home, offering a platform where you can consult with your dentist about the dental problem you are experiencing without any issues, from the very first consultation to ongoing post-op care.

Plenty of dentists nowadays use a number of apps to make their jobs easier and more effective. Some of these apps allow dentists to organise treatment plans for patients, coordinate future appointments and follow up care. Dental pain, facial swelling, abscesses, and broken teeth are all major indicators that a face to face appointment is required. However, during this time, the urgency of these matters can be evaluated first by a virtual consultation.

Remove any obstacles for patients to communicate directly with you and give them multiple methods of communication. Virtual consultations allow you to talk to your dentist before receiving any treatment, having the chance to explore their options first.

The advantages of virtual consultations:

  • Easy access to your dentist
  • Avoid the risk of exposure to illnesses
  • No need to take time off from work
  • Reduce wait time
  • Get assessed if you need an urgent/emergency visit
  • Get guidance on possible treatment options
  • Know if you are eligible for a particular procedure
  • More time to consider your options and make a decision
  • Get additional care tips

Embracing new technology allows practitioners to become more efficient, providing more convenience to patients.

If you would like us to embed an E-consultation form onto your website, allowing patients to upload photos prior to their virtual consultation then please give the Dental Design team a call on 01202 677277.
