Access to patient care is important to us.
During this COVID-19 pandemic, our office will be offering Teledentistry so that our office can be available to the community and patients we serve. Teledentistry is a way to have a virtual video consultation with the dentist without leaving the comfort of your home.
You can schedule a teledentistry appointment by contacting our office and leaving a message with the on-call dentist. Teledentistry appointments are treated the same as a regular dental appointment – we will need your consent to conduct the appointment, and the dentist will examine and ask questions to the best of their ability virtually to help with their consultation. The video conference allows the dentist to initially see any dental concern without an in-person visit. It is a great opportunity for patients who need remote screening for emergencies, reassurance, or education.
Remember, it is important to follow up with your primary dentist during this outbreak instead of going to the emergency room. Our dental emergency on-call number is (310) 384-5051.
