Teledentistry can take a number of forms, including:
- Live video: Two-way interaction between a patient and dentist using audiovisual technology.
- Store and forward: Recorded health information — such as radiographs, photos, video, digital impressions or photomicrographs — is transmitted through a secure electronic communications system to a practitioner. The practitioner then uses the information to evaluate the patient’s condition or render a service outside of a real-time or live interaction.
- Remote patient monitoring: Personal health and medical information is collected from an individual in one location then transmitted electronically to a provider in a different location for use in care. This could be used in a nursing home setting or in an educational program.
- Mobile health: Health care and public health practice and education supported by mobile communication devices such as cell phones, tablet computers or personal digital assistants. This could include apps that monitor patient brushing or other home care.
