MouthWatch LLC, Metuchen, NJ, announced the launch of its Teledentistry Innovation Awards. The company, which offers teledentistry solutions, digital case presentation tools, and intraoral imaging devices, wants to use the awards to highlight the many ways teledentistry is being implemented across a broad spectrum of dental care, including public health and private practice settings. In addition, the “Tellie” Awards will recognize individual, forward-thinking dental providers who are realizing the full potential for connected dental care technology and reshaping the practice of dentistry and the state of oral healthcare globally.

“Teledentistry is rapidly expanding in virtually every dental environment: rural settings, urban areas, private practices, and public health programs. It is being utilized by dentists, hygienists, specialists and medical care providers. Our goal is to shine a light on those teledentistry innovators and pioneers who are leading the way and proving by example that teledentistry technology can enhance dentistry, reach more patients, and improve oral health and overall health, “ said Brant Herman, CEO and founder of MouthWatch.

The Teledentistry Innovation Awards will be presented to winners in three main categories: dentists/specialists; dental hygienists; and oral health programs.
