Delta Dental of South Carolina has partnered with TeleDentistry.com to provide 24/7 virtual dental care
Teledentistry is included in your existing coverage and is considered an oral examination under your plan. It’s a safe and effective way to receive care and avoid the emergency room. You can use Delta Dental – Virtual Visits when:
• having a dental emergency and you do not have an established dentist
• needing access to a dentist after hours
• needing to consult with a dentist without leaving your home.
You can conveniently access this service from your home with the use of a smartphone, tablet or computer with audio/visual capabilities.
Simply follow these four easy steps:
Visit the Delta Dental - Virtual Visits patient portal
Fill out your e-documents
Take photos of the problem area
Connect with a TeleDentistry.com dentist and begin your consultation
TeleDentistry.com dentists provide initial consultation services and
can write prescriptions when appropriate. You will be referred to
a Delta Dental network dentist for definitive diagnosis and treatment.
After the initial consultation—
The TeleDentistry.com dentist will email consultation notes to your Delta Dental network dentist for further treatment. If you have not established care with a Delta Dental network dentist, with your authorization, TeleDentistry.com will refer you to an in-network dentist.
This service supplements your current plan coverage and should be used after business hours, on holidays and weekends, or when your regular dentist is unavailable.
Note: A teledentistry visit is counted as an oral examination under your plan. The copay depends on your dental plan.
