The ADA Standards Committee on Dental Informatics has approved ADA Technical Report No. 1112 for Teledentistry, which is now available to members at no cost.
The purpose of the technical report is to provide information for dental professionals on the informatics aspects of the evolving field of teledentistry and assist them in determining goals, selecting components and creating working systems.
The report also provides an adoption guide, which is designed to support providers who are considering incorporating teledentistry in their practices. It includes guidance on 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.
ADA Technical Report No. 1112 is available to ADA members by visiting the ADA Store or calling 1-800-947-4746.
