Teledentistry is efficient and cost-effective when used for the preoperative assessment of patients. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) reported in a follow-up study that 95.9% of patients were given accurate diagnoses and treatment plans. It also found that there was an individual saving per patient of $67 when using teledentistry over traditional in-person visits. Practices can choose to pass some of these savings on to patients as an incentive to get them to get their dental work done.
