Spread of Coronavirus
The spread of the coronavirus can be transmitted within the dental office setting, exposing both the patients and staff to the virus through inhalation of airborne microorganisms that can remain in the air for long periods as well as with direct contact with blood or oral fluids during and after procedures.
Teledentistry will prove to be one of the most effective means of maintaining dental care and communicating with patients virtually through video conferencing and file sharing during the COVID-19.
Patients who had contact with other people who have traveled to China, Italy, Iran, and other at-risk countries, should be assessed virtually through telemedicine and treated through teledentistry.
According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), WHO (World Health Organizations) and other governing bodies, Teledentistry, and dental monitoring will play an instrumental role in minimizing the transmission of the Coronavirus.
Dr. Jacquie Smiles and her team of orthodontists are here to help you achieve your best smile with remote and long-distance dental care monitoring.
