Competitive Health, TeleDentists partner to expand virtual dental care

The TeleDentists, a virtual dental care provider, has partnered with digital health solution supplier Competitive Health, according to a Jan. 7 news release.

The partnership will allow patients access to board-certified dentists via mobile or desktop devices. Services include oral health risk assessments, preventive treatment and urgent consultations, which are conducted in real time. If necessary, follow-up appointments are scheduled.

The solution can reduce the burden of expensive ER visits and taking time off of work, Kimberly Darling, Competitive Health president and CEO, said in the news release.

"The TeleDentists is expanding access to dental care by providing virtual consults with dentists so that consumers can get answers to their dental questions, help when they need it and convenient care," Maria Kunstadter, DDS, co-founder of The TeleDentists, said.
