Given the scale of the pandemic, and the increasing containment measures taken by governments worldwide, tele dentistry such as SmileMate Virtual Consultation has emerged as a solution to help assess patients remotely in these unprecedented times – initiating a first consultation from home and preventing the spread of COVID-19.
Standing alongside all dental professionals, Dental Monitoring has now decided to provide until the end of May 2020, free access for SmileMate Virtual Consultation to all individual dentists and orthodontists worldwide.
SmileMate Virtual Consultation is a “light” version of SmileMate, simpler and more immediate to implement for these times – enabling rapid on-boarding and roll-out. It has been developed to allow practices to remotely assess their new patients directly through their website.
CEO and Co-founder of Dental Monitoring, Philippe Salah, explained: “Allowing free access to our solution until the end of May is our duty as global citizens. It is important that we help dental professionals find solutions so they can keep providing their expert care, even during the pandemic.”
On the accelerated development of SmileMate Virtual Consultation, CEO and Founder of SmileMate, Nick Duncan said: “I think I speak for the entire dental industry when I say that our sole focus at this time is to do whatever we can to help clinics get through the current period of uncertainty. We've worked hard to develop a new version of our technology that is easier to implement for both patients and individual clinics. As a partner of dental professionals, making it free for all independent dentists and orthodontists was the right thing to do.”
Dental Monitoring is working with dental professionals, to improve its solutions and help patients access dental care anytime, anywhere.
About SmileMate Virtual Consultation, remote assessment of new patients.
All new patient calls can be pre-qualified remotely using the SmileMate Virtual Consultation assessment tool directly through the doctor’s practice website. The process is simple:
Step 1– The doctor simply installs a widget on its practice website. The new patient clicks on the widget, creates a profile and takes five intra-oral pictures on their smartphone (no need to download an App or use a ScanBox and cheek retractors)
Step 2– A comprehensive customized report is automatically generated by our AI engine and sent to the doctor
Step 3– The doctor qualifies the patient’s needs on their SmileMate portal
Step 4– The doctor reviews and personalizes the report before sharing with the patient together with their treatment options and a booking link if an appointment is required.
