During the COVID-19 outbreak, teledentistry is an effective way to triage patients and conduct problem-focused evaluations in order to limit office visits to patients needing urgent or emergency care. This presentation gives an overview of teledentistry and available low-cost technologies for dentists who want to temporarily use virtual services during the pandemic. It also covers the privacy and billing implications of teledentistry and provides reference materials and links to reliable information sources on HIPAA, documentation and dental coding.
