Get help right away with emergency teledentistry
Accidents happen unexpectedly and are often a scary, overwhelming experience. It doesn’t matter if it’s something as simple as a chipped or broken tooth, a toothache, swollen gums or something more serious like facial lacerations or impact trauma – you need access to an emergency dentist right away. It’s not recommended to wait for help because symptoms may worsen and it often becomes harder to properly treat your condition. While teledentistry isn’t a substitute for a hands-on visit with an emergency dentist in Toronto, consulting with a dentist through video chat will help facilitate treatment. A dental emergency can be triaged through teledentistry and the problem can often be solved with a medical prescription given during a teledentistry consultation. In a large number of emergency cases, a professional dentist is able to determine the steps a patient needs to take in order to fix their problem by diagnosing what’s wrong and how severe the emergency is. Hopefully it’s not serious and advice, a medical prescription and an at-home treatment plan solves the problem, but if not, using teledentistry is the fastest way to book an emergency dental appointment in Toronto. There’s no hassle trying to figure out which dental office is open, located near you and accepting patients safely – we do all the required searching and legwork for you.

Get emergency dental help when you need it.
If you’ve ever had a dental emergency, you’ll know that help can’t arrive soon enough. You’ll also know that it can be a real headache to find a local, suitable and available emergency dentist to handle your concern. The COVID-19 restrictions have only compounded this problem, with most dentist offices closed or on limited hours and unable to assist. Using a certified emergency teledentistry service is highly recommended and gives patients access to an easy route to licensed professional care including local in-person appointments. Getting face-to-face with a licensed Toronto emergency dentist that is ready to help is easy when using our teledentistry service. Simply complete and submit the emergency teledentistry intake form and we will contact you right away to get you registered and book your appointment. The teledentistry process is similar to being triaged at a hospital emergency room but patients find it faster and much more convenient. There is no need to leave your home to receive professional advice, diagnosis and an initial treatment plan. If required you will also be able to receive medical prescriptions without visiting a dental clinic and an appointment with an emergency dentist near you.

Access to medical prescriptions without going to a dental clinic.
During your online consultation your virtual dentist is able to immediately prescribe a medical prescription if necessary. This saves you time, money and headache while getting you the treatment you need sooner. Your teledentist will also give you detailed instructions about using the prescribed medications and if applicable, outline your home care options. The rapid care and treatment that teledentistry makes possible is especially beneficial during the current restrictions surrounding emergency dentists during COVID-19 when visiting a dentist in-person is more difficult.

Consulting with an emergency dentist online is easy.
It’s impossible to plan for a dental emergency and being busy doesn’t matter easy. Even if it’s not convenient, an accident could happen and you might need emergency dental care quickly. If you’ve been the victim of a dental emergency, consider using our teledentistry service to speak with a licensed dentist immediately and get help now. Teledentistry means you don’t need to visit a dental office and our online consultation appointments are flexible and convenient. Simply submit the teledentistry intake form to book an appointment to video chat with a dentist and get help right away. It’s easy! Use your smartphone, tablet or another computer equipped with a webcam to receive emergency dental care quickly and from anywhere you want.

What is emergency teledentistry?

It is beneficial to get professional help quickly during any type of dental emergency or urgent oral health concern. Teledentistry currently offers the fastest way to speak with an emergency dentist in Toronto and it’s very simple to use. Our teledentistry service uses a web-browser based video conference platform, which means no downloads or installation required. Patients are able to get immediate professional help and guidance from wherever they are using a smartphone, tablet or camera equipped computer.
Under the current restrictions implemented to stop the spread of COVID-19, the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO) has suggested all patients who have suffered a dental emergency use a teledentistry service to get initial treatment and triage before receiving access to an in-person appointment with an emergency dentist in Toronto. Martindale teledentistry is set up to help patients through their dental emergences while reducing the need for in-person appointments at a dental clinic. This is because many dental emergencies may not require in-person treatment and are much easier to treat at home after being given proper diagnosis, medical prescriptions (if required) and professional guidance. Of course, if a dental emergency requires an in-office visit with a dentist, our teledental service simply acts as a triage and appointment booking service for emergency dental appointments available locally in Toronto. Teledentistry is applicable to all sorts of oral health concerns and virtually all patients can benefit from an online consultation. Teledentistry is covered by most insurance providers and can greatly speed up the appointment booking process and hassle involved.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Is teledentistry only for emergency situations?
While teledentistry can provide immediate assistance and professional care for emergency patients, our dentists also use it to treat other oral health concerns remotely. If visiting a dental clinic is difficult and not possible quickly (like under COVID-19 restrictions) then teledentistry is a great option to get treatment and care. Teledentistry is for both emergency and non-emergency situations.
Patients are able to save time and money by using a convenient teledentistry service to understand their issue and get a treatment plan outlined by a dentist.

Are Martindale teledentists licensed?
Yes, every dentist practicing on our teledentistry platform is fully licensed and trusted by the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO). Our team of dentist consists of professionals from all over the city and province who practice regularly at in-office dental clinics but are now also providing teledentistry support to patients who need it. Every dentist, whether under our teledentistry service or those providing in-person emergency care in Toronto (and Ontario) operate under the strict safety guidelines imposed by the RCDSO regarding appropriate PPE and patient care practices.

How long do teledentistry consultations take?
Requesting a teledentistry consultation requires patients to get in contact with us by filling tout the intake form, using the live chat feature or phoning us directly. Once patients have been registered for and an appointment booked the consultation can get started. The actual consultation with a dentist typically takes about 15 to 30 minutes or whatever the amount of time is required to properly address the situation. Keep in mind that even if the oral health concern cannot be solved during the video consultation, an emergency dentist appointment in Toronto will be quickly arranged. In this case, the consultation portion will act as triage (as the RCDSO has suggested) so that the same intake steps may not be required prior to the scheduled in-person appointment.

Am I able to visit a Toronto dentist under COVID-19 restrictions?
If you’re experiencing a dental emergency situation or oral health concern requiring attention immediately, you are able to visit a dental office that is open and able to operate under the strict health and safety guidelines outlined by the Royal College. However, the RCDSO has suggested that emergency dental offices use a teledentistry service to screen and triage all patients before booking in-person appointments. This process is similar to the intake procedures at a hospital emergency room and are part of the effort to keep dental care available in Toronto. Teledentistry allows dentists to effectively examine and triage patients without the need to interact in close proximity in an effort to reduce the number of appointments and keep everyone safe.

Emergency virtual dentist, emergency video conference dentist, emergency online dentist, or even emergency Skype dentist – it’s all emergency teledentistry to us.
