Teledentistry in action

So, Ruiz did what many people do when they have a question—she turned to the internet. That’s where she found a teledentistry app called Toothpic.

Toothpic allows people like Ruiz who need a check-up or have a specific dental concern to snap a few photos of their teeth and submit them along with a short write-up of their issue. A licensed dentist then reviews the submission and sends back a personalized report with recommended treatment options and estimated costs, in as little as six hours.
