Dental Care Alliance launches teledentistry platform

After launching its teledentistry platform in late March, Sarasota, Fla.-based Dental Care Alliance has treated more than 1,400 emergency dental patients through the virtual service.

"The numbers of patients opting for virtual consultations continues to grow rapidly," said Jerry Rhodes, CEO of Dental Care Alliance. "DCA is pleased to provide a solution for our affiliated doctors and their patients, while also doing our part to support front-line healthcare providers in this time of crisis."

Dental Care Alliance supports more than 325 affiliated practices across 20 states. Many of these practices have closed or are severely limiting their services.

To go one step further, Dental Care Alliance has also partnered with local emergency rooms and urgent care centers allowing them to refer patients who present with dental emergencies.
