Grow your practice with Virtual Consult

Is your practice ready to offer virtual dentistry to your patients? In 2019, the global teledentistry market stood at a little more than $667 million. Before the decade is over, the market is expected to reach $2.6 billion. You won’t want to miss out on that kind of growth.

But teledentistry isn’t just a great business opportunity. It’s also great for patients. As Dr. Deirmenjian, the CEO of Smiles West Dental Management says, “We firmly believe that teledentistry will continue to be the future of building healthier smiles.”

Setting up a teledentistry space in your office may sound expensive and daunting if you don’t already have the necessary equipment and a speedy internet connection. Fortunately, there’s a tool that makes teledentistry simple: Delta Dental – Virtual Consult. If you haven’t signed up yet, it’s not too late!

Connect remotely with your patients using Virtual Consult

There’s a new tool to help you connect with your Delta Dental PPO™ and Delta Dental Premier® patients. Say hello to Delta Dental – Virtual Consult. This new platform lets you check in with and diagnose Delta Dental members remotely, all with an emphasis on simplicity when it comes to scheduling.

Virtual Consult is a video-based platform for conducting limited oral evaluations virtually through a fully secure, HIPAA-compliant platform. It’s ideal for seeing patients remotely for urgent consultations, follow-up exams or general questions. With Virtual Consult, you can:

  • Schedule and have video appointments from anywhere you have an internet connection and a webcam or an iOS device
  • Connect with new patients
  • Safely prescribe e-prescriptions for pain or infection
  • See patients with urgent needs at any time, day or night

Virtual dentistry offers convenience for patients, and it’s a great safe, contact-free access tool for dentists, as well. If you have open time in your schedule or want to see patients after hours, Virtual Consult lets you see patients remotely. Diagnostic exams conducted through Virtual Consult are submitted to Delta Dental the same as in-office claims, so you don’t need to worry about learning a billing new system.

Provider enrollment in Virtual Consult is now open!  To learn more, fill out the Virtual Consult interest form and we’ll reach out to you.
