We’re already seeing a big increase in dental and orthodontic practices offering patients the chance for a one-to-one video consultation from the comfort of their own home, as a result of the Coronovirus pandemic.
Dental patients and dentists are realizing there are multiple benefits of virtual video consultations. Firstly, many patients get anxious at the thought of visiting a dental practice. Nervousness can stem from having had a previous bad experience or maybe just an irrational fear of all things dental. Web video consultations offer an ideal way to reduce dental anxiety. New dental patients get the chance to meet their dentist, explain their dental requirements and discuss treatment plans without committing to visiting the practice, in the first instance.
FooCo are now offering dentists and orthodontist a variety of video consultations via apps like Zoom, Whatsapp, Facebook and Skype integrated into their dental websites.
Patients can now book their virtual dental appointments and consultations direct from the dental website. We’re also offering options for patients to upload images of their teeth and smile before their dental consultations on Zoom, Whatsapp, Facebook or Skype so dentist can give effective advice and recommendations during the video website consultation.
To view how forward thinking dental practices are already using our Remote Virtual Video Dental Consultations service click on these examples.
