Teledentistry, a relatively new field, can change the dynamics of the dental care delivery system. Most of the dentists are unaware about teledentistry, about its goals and advantages and how to get involved into it. This article illustrates as to how teledentistry can be an effective solution for dentists and their patients.
Teledentistry presents a possible solution to many longstanding problems in dentistry, but it also faces significant challenges. Its maturation will depend as much, on the efforts of the health authorities as on the collective efforts of the dental professionals.
Teledentistry can meet the dental care needs of the underserved in the rural areas of India and it can ensure the good oral health of the children in schools and child care centres. Teledentistry provides new opportunities for dental education by providing an easy access to primary care professionals for efficient consultation, thus helping in conducting effective postgraduate education and continuing dental education programmes.
