Teledentistry in Washington (April 1, 2020): Recording
Presented By: Arcora Foundation, Dr. Nathan Suter
Many people face barriers to accessing dental care including the cost of dental care, fear, geographic distribution of dental offices, and linguistic/cultural barriers. Teledentistry is an opportunity to address these barriers by bringing dental care to community sites where underserved populations receive educational, social, and general health services and to link services provided in the community with dental clinics where more advanced services can be provided. This is a proven strategy to increase access to preventive services.
