Members of GEHA can get 24/7 virtual dental care through GEHA – Virtual Visits when your dentist is not available.
Teledentistry is a safe and effective way to receive dental care and avoid the emergency room. Use GEHA – Virtual Visits when you:
Visit the GEHA – Virtual Dental Visits patient portal and create an account.
Complete all required online forms.
Take photos of the problem area.
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 GEHA network dentist for further treatment. If you do not have a GEHA 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.*
