Course Overview

It will never be a replacement for the thorough oral examination comprising of a full mouth periodontal and radiographical assessment including hard and soft tissues examinations, however, it can be very useful to help diagnosis and triage patients in pain and those seeking advice.

Several companies are offering teledentistry and this webinar recording is by one system currently used in Australia which could be adopted to use in the UK. 

This webinar covers the Rules and regulations of teledentistry and incorporates the basic technology requirements and the workflows needed for a successful teledentistry set up.
