What is Dental Monitoring?
Dental monitoring is a virtual platform that allows our office to offer virtual appointments from the comfort of your home, work or school. This advanced technology will reduce the number of required in-office visits, while allowing for Drs. Panucci & Jackfert to monitor and guide your treatment for an excellent result. Remote patient monitoring has been in wide use in the medical field for decades—think pacemakers and implanted defibrillators. The health data collected allows health care providers to not only monitor patients remotely, but to act on the information received.
In the dental field, the technology needed to provide patients with remote monitoring is much more pervasive and much less invasive. With a smartphone and the Dental Monitoring™ (DM) app, an orthodontic patient’s treatment can be monitored remotely via photos and video taken by the patient and sent to the orthodontic practice. So better, shorter treatments combined with respecting a patient’s valuable time by reducing the number of appointments.
