People are busier today than ever, but that does not mean that health is any less crucial. There has been a shift in recent years toward virtual care as more people struggle to find time to make appointments with their general physicians and dentists.
Teledentistry is an innovative solution to this modern problem. Learn more about how virtual dentistry can improve dental health, from consultations to treatments.
What Is Teledentistry?
From ordering contact lenses to preparing taxes, we can access many of the services we use in our daily lives online. Teledentistry allows oral care providers to move toward a similar level of convenience and innovation.
Teledentistry refers to virtual visits and online consultations with dentists. Patients can talk to a dentist online.
What Service Is Included With Teledentistry?
Dentistry is a hands-on health service. The tooth decay cannot be healed with an antibiotic. Please understand that there are many limitations to what we can offer via Teledentistry.
209 NYC Dental offers the following services available for a virtual online consultation:
- Cosmetic Dentistry Consultation with Dr. Ifraimov
- Invisalign Consultation with Dr. Ahn
- Sleep Apnea Consultation with Dr. Nikitayev

Benefits of Teledentistry
Online dental consultations are ideal for people who live far away from a dental office, do not have a primary dentist, or cannot make it into the office. Teledentistry has a wealth of benefits for patients, including:
- Convenience: Many patients already use mobile devices and computers to search for information related to healthcare. Through these devices, teledentistry allows dental professionals to provide easy initial consultations for specific dental needs.
- Meet & greet: We have patients traveling from all around the US to address their dental needs. Telendental visit is an easy way to meet a doctor and discuss your dental needs and wants prior to booking your flight from Taxes or Arizona.
- Social Distancing
When you talk to a dentist online, you receive the same level of care that you would in the office. Teledentistry just makes the process simpler and more comfortable for you.
