You will be connected with a TeleDentistry.com dentist to begin your consultation.
TeleDentistry.com dentists provide initial consultation services* and can write prescriptions** when appropriate. The TeleDentistry.com dentist will email consultation notes to your Delta Dental network dentist for further treatment. If you do not have a dentist, TeleDentistry.com will refer you to an in-network dentist with your authorization.***
Teledentistry is meant to supplement your current dental plan and should be used after business hours, on holidays and weekends, or when experiencing a dental emergency and your regular dentist is not available. A teledentistry visit is counted as one oral examination under your plan.*
To check your plan details, visit deltadentalia.com and sign into your account.
If you have additional questions, please see our FAQs.
