NNOHA Teledentistry Checklist and Readiness Assessment

This document outlines key areas for the successful implementation of teledentistry. It also includes a readiness assessment for community health centers to determine the level of readiness in their organization for teledentistry.

Teledentistry User’s Guide

Teledentistry is an emerging trend to  help improve access to oral health care, improve the dental care  delivery system, and lower costs. NNOHA has worked with health centers  since Spring 2020 to develop and test a variety of strategies to deliver  dental services via synchronous teledentistry. This User’s Guide gives  an overview of teledentistry, describes its use in health center dental  programs, and includes practical tools for implementing teledentistry.
