Teledentistry.com Partners with UNLV to Provide Patent-Pending Model of Uberized Teledentistry Services
LAS VEGAS, Feb. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Teledentistry.com has partnered with the University of Nevada-Las Vegas (UNLV) School of Dental Medicine, Liberty Dental Plan, the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, Oral Health Program, and UMC of Southern Nevada to train dental residents to utilize a patent-pending model of uberized Teledentistry services within the hospital emergency room system.
Through this partnership, residents in UNLV’s General Practice Residency Program will gain access to an efficient virtual care services platform and expand their ability to help patients experiencing dental emergencies. In addition to the increased ability for patients and dentists to connect, the introduction of Teledentistry.com’s platform will effectively reduce emergency room overcrowding and opioid prescription dependency.
Since 2017, Teledentistry.com has been a pioneer in revolutionizing technologies and methodologies to better connect patients to dentists. Teledentistry.com’s goal is to improve the entire ecosystem of dental care; from the moment a patient decides to seek dental help to the resolution of their dental emergency. Teledentistry.com’s patent-pending uberization system searches for a dentist licensed in a given state and connects them to a patient when the service is required within minutes. This technology allows various elements (such as insurance companies and ER’s) in the dental ecosystem to provide patients with 24/7 access to a state-licensed dentist. Teledentistry.com also offers a platform through which dentists can provide Teledentistry-related services to existing patients within their practices.
