Dental Online Visits Grand Rapids MI

When something goes wrong with your teeth, it can be hard to know whether you should see an emergency dentist immediately or if you can afford to wait. Fortunately, our office now proudly offers virtual dental visits for situations when you’re pressed for time or unsure if you should make an in-person appointment. You can now have a consultation with one of our emergency dentists from the comfort of your own home! Here’s what you need to know about teledentistry, the latest innovation from our office.

If you have any questions or concerns about emergency dental e-visits, please feel free to contact us and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible with an answer to your questions.

What Is Teledentistry?

Teledentistry is an innovative way to access convenient dental care when you need it most, using your computer, tablet, or phone. Similar to telemedicine, it’s like a dental visit that takes place online. It works like a video call: our team will be able to see you, take a look at whatever issue you’re experiencing, and counsel you through a dental emergency or concern.

Our emergency dentists can provide any of the following services through our teledentistry platform:

  • Periodic Invisalign progress check-ins
  • Consultations regarding recommended or desired treatment
  • New patient consultations
  • Medical advice about swelling, broken teeth, or soft tissue lesions

At the end of the day, you don’t need to rearrange your schedule to get dental advice from one of our qualified specialists. Teledentistry is an easy, convenient, and affordable way to access high-quality, personalized dental care from wherever you are.

How Does It Work?

Setting up an e-visit is easy. First, you’ll need to create an account on our online platform, using your email address and creating a password to log in. We’ll ask you to fill out a short form answering questions about your medical history so we’ll have the information we need to treat you. This is similar to the sort of form you would fill out before any medical or dental visit.

Next, you’ll need to enter your payment information. There is a $49 charge for an e-visit, however if you do need to come in for an appointment, this fee will be credited towards treatment needed.

Lastly, you’ll be welcomed into a virtual “waiting room” until one of our emergency dentists is available to jump on the call. You can also schedule an e-visit for a future time if there are no dentists available or if you’d rather chat with someone later in the day.

When Should I Use Teledentistry?

While certain appointments are best conducted in person, there are plenty of situations in which an e-visit would be warranted, including times when:

  • You are not sure if you actually have to visit a dentist for your questions or concerns.
  • You are too busy to visit a dentist in-person.
  • You want to talk to the doctor, but don’t have time to schedule an appointment.
  • You have an after-hours dental emergency.
