Simulating Telehealth in Dental Education: Practical Lessons

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, teledentistry was primarily used in rural communities to bridge geographic barriers and provide expanded access to some form of oral health care management. However, after experiencing the impact of this recent pandemic, the promise of teledentistry has been widely accepted and is now seen as an essential tool for the modern dental practice. With this seismic shift, the need to incorporate teledentistry into dental curriculum becomes more critical, especially if our graduates are to be effective and successful in its practice.

Join us in this free webinar as we explore how the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston designed, integrated and assessed teledentistry in a high-fidelity simulation rotation for their rising D4 students.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define teledentistry.
