The working group is developing new standards related to teledentistry to create best technical practices for the exchange of data. 

The American Dental Association (ADA) has put together a new standards working group on teledentistry and is seeking volunteers to join. 

According to the association, the working group’s mission is ”to determine best technical practices for the capture, storage and exchange of data, with the goal of providing practitioners with guidelines on reliable methods for the secure and private exchange of data among patients and providers to aid in diagnosis, treatment, and more.” 

The working group will reportedly develop these new documents through an open and voluntary consensus process under the guidance of the ADA Standards Committee on Dental Informatics.
