The report also contains an adoption guide designed to assist providers who are considering incorporating teledentistry into their practices or practice systems in making decisions about how they will use teledentistry, what arrangements they need to make, what hardware and software choices they could consider, and how they could organize a system that includes teledentistry as one of its components.
