The ADA is offering a new technical report on teledentistry to support dental professionals using the technology.
The American Dental Association (ADA) Standards Committee on Dental Informatics has approved ADA Technical Report No. 1112 for Teledentistry, which is now available to members at no cost.
The technical report aims to provide dental professionals with information on the informatics aspects of the evolving field of teledentistry and assist them in determining goals, selecting components, and creating working systems.
The report also provides an adoption guide, which is designed to support providers who are considering incorporating teledentistry in their practices. It includes guidance on making decisions about how to use teledentistry, what arrangements must be made, what hardware and software choices could be considered, and how to organize a system that includes teledentistry as one of its components.
ADA Technical Report No. 1112 is available to ADA members by visiting the ADA Store or calling 1-800-947-4746.
