As a dental specialist who uses the latest technology to help her patients get the immediate care they need while saving time, Deborah K. Ruprecht, DDS uses teledentistry to meet with patients personally by video conference. This meeting sets the foundation for a caring relationship and begins the course of treatment for your oral wellness and healthy smile.
How is a virtual consultation done?
After a patient completes a confidential online form and uploads a selfie, Dr Ruprecht reviews their information and contacts the patient to schedule the online video consultation.
Just like an office consultation, Dr. Ruprecht will get acquainted with you and set you at ease, discuss your health history and listen to your chief concerns. You may need x-rays or CBCT digital imaging, and the office staff may need to coordinate with your restorative dentist or dental specialist to discuss your case or exchange other information.
Why it’s important
Teledentistry makes it possible to accomplish from home what otherwise would require a visit to the office. This saves you time, especially if you are in pain, and limits the number of office visits to any treatments and procedures you may need.
During this time, she will explain any recommended procedures, why they’re necessary, what you can expect before, during and afterwards. Of course, she will answer your questions so that you understand and agree with the treatment plan. Comprehensive and detailed treatment may require additional diagnostics services and office visits.
The goal of your virtual consultation is for Dr. Ruprecht to become familiar with your immediate needs and concerns and plan top priority treatment remotely saving you time and making it easier and more convenient to have a healthy smile.
