Delta Dental of Iowa adds emergency teledentistry coverage

Individuals with Delta Dental of Iowa dental benefits now have dental emergency coverage through teledentistry.com, according to a Sept. 7 news release.

Delta Dental virtual visits could eliminate the need for emergency room visits. A teledentistry.com dentist will provide an initial consultation and can write prescriptions if appropriate. If additional care is needed, the patient will be referred to a network dentist.

The virtual visits don't replace routine dental visits. With teledentistry.com, members have 24/7 access to a dentist via smartphone, tablet or computer.

The new coverage comes at no additional cost to Delta Dental of Iowa members.
