Traditional models of dentistry are not always accessible to diverse populations with varying needs. This session will dive into how teledentistry, portable dentistry, and a hybrid approach can improve access to care and prevent disease. We will identify workflows that can support safe team-based teledentistry and portable dentistry. A review of Assisted Oral Hygiene and Guided Oral Hygiene Programs will be offered to attendees in order to inspire new practice models.
