St. Louis, MO – April, 2019 – Thanks to a growing number of industry partnerships, employer relationships and reseller agreements, TeleDentists’ unique teledentistry solution is now available to provide consultations for non-traumatic urgent dental care at any time and from anywhere.-- representing a full spectrum of healthcare delivery in multiple settings from hospitals and urgent care centers to colleges, universities, company clinics and senior living centers. The solution includes immediate access to a quality dentist who can access the problem, prescribe prescriptions as needed, and schedule a next day in-person appointment with a nearby dentist.
“We are rapidly expanding our corporate footprint, bringing to market a low-cost telehealth service provided by a quality dentist to deal with urgent dental issues – like a tooth ache, mouth sores or pain,” says Maria Kunstadter, DDS, co-founder, The TeleDentists. “These partnerships increase our reach, helping people to access care, whether it’s in the middle of the night, a long holiday weekend or while traveling.
