The rollout of a teledentistry service comes as dental practices are looking for alternative ways to provide care amidst office closures due to COVID-19. 

Carestream Dental announced that it is partnering to launch a teledentistry solution to provide dental professionals with the functionality to maintain continuity of care for patients during the COVID-19 crisis. 

“Carestream Dental is excited to be launching a teledentistry solution,” Ed Shellard, DMD, chief dental officer at Carestream Dental, said. “The COVID-19 virus highlights the need to offer a remote solution to interact with patients and this will help deliver a timely answer.”

The company is inviting dental professionals interested in the service to register at its website to receive more information.
