About this book

Teledentistry is of growing interest to the healthcare world. Over the last few years, momentum is growing in research and service in Teledentistry - mostly carried out by tertiary medical institutes across the world. While Teledentistry is advanced in some sub-specialties, it has high potential to receive more attention from general communities, dentists, dental hygienists, physicians, nurses, researchers and students. For the first time, this book will present essential knowledge from experts in this field. They will discuss the current status of technology and service in various Telledentistry sub specialties and its future implications. Written by experts from around the globe, (i.e., from USA, Europe, Australia and Asia), this book presents technical issues and clinical applications. It includes collective experiences from dental service providers in different parts of the world practicing a wide range of Teledentistry applications. This book lays the foundations for the globalization of Teledentistry procedures, making it possible for dental service to be delivered anywhere in the world.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is a comprehensive overview of the evolving area of teledentistry, detailing how this area of technology can be effectively used. … can be useful for educators and community health workers. … This in-depth introduction to the field of teledentistry provides evidence-based information on this developing area. This is a welcome addition, as there are few such books available to the profession of dentistry.” (Janet H. Southerland, Doody’s Book Reviews, February, 2015)
