Why Might I Need a Virtual Consult?
At your local dentist’s office, you will always have the chance to meet with your dentist in person to discuss your dental needs. However, sometimes there are circumstances when scheduling a dental appointment may not be possible or practical. This is where a virtual consult comes in. Virtual consultations are secure, web-based video/audio chats that take place right from your electronic device. You will take this time to meet with your dentist virtually, just as you would in person.
Virtual consults can be used for a variety of things. In some cases, a virtual consult might be appropriate if you have recently undergone some dental work and you are now experiencing some discomfort. Your dentist will be able to assess your situation during the virtual consult and determine whether or not you need to be seen in person.
