Oral Health Day 2020
June 3 @ 8:30 am - 1:30 pmFree
Last year, we drew a record crowd to discuss policy opportunities at the state level aimed at increasing access channels for North Carolinians who have traditionally been at a disadvantage to optimal oral health care services. This year, we will focus on the utilization of teledentistry and the opportunities it brings to opening access to care, especially for those in rural parts of our state.
Teledentistry, like telemedicine, is the use of electronic information and communication technology to provide support of efficient and quality patient care. Especially in rural North Carolina, the physical distance between patients and the nearest dentist can be a significant barrier preventing many from seeking care.
To learn more about teledentistry and its potential to expand access to care in North Carolina, visit our Oral Health Day page, and be sure to register to join us on June 3.
