What Kind of Dental Services Can I Offer with the GoodCheckup® Teledentistry Platform?
Improve access and the dental health of your patients with teledentistry services you can easily offer
As a busy dental professional, adding dental consultations with the video chat that GoodCheckup® provides is a great way to grow your dental practice while also increasing your patients’ access to needed care, especially patients who have a dental emergency, need a low cost alternative to an office visit, or are in rural areas. Many dentists think of teledentistry tied to software platforms, which seems like a heavy lift.
By contrast, setting up online virtual consultations with GoodCheckup® teledentistry is quick and easy. That gives you time to think about the type of services you can offer your patients through the app.
There are a wide range of dental health services that you can address with patients online, freeing up time they spend in the dentist chair and waiting room, and saving you money on the time and overhead those office visits require.

Grow Your Practice with Teledental Services
The relaxed convenience of a GoodCheckup® video chat will help your patients better understand treatment options than if you have the discussion in a hectic clinic environment. And, being able to go in depth with patients one-on-one means more opportunity to book extra treatment services that will increase revenues and your bottom line. You may find that you are able to add new services you did not offer before as you develop your online consultations that both improve communications and free up chair time in the clinic for more hands-on patient care.
