LAS VEGAS, NV, USA, May 31, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Seeing a dentist virtually can be a beneficial option for dental emergencies outside of normal office hours or when a patient is away from home and unable to get an appointment with their regular dentist. Virtual dental care also has grown in importance since the emergence of COVID-19.
Guardian Life is pleased to offer virtual dentist visits to its group members via Teledentistry.com, which provides access to emergency dental care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The service is available for Guardian members whose plans include coverage for oral exams.
“Teledentistry.com is dedicated to improving access to dental care. Our team of dentists are ready to help with a virtual consultation, prescribe medications as appropriate, and then refer patients to a local in-network dentist for regular care,” said Dr. Vilas Sastry, CEO of Teledentistry.com. “We are proud to partner with Guardian to help support their members with a virtual dentist anytime, anywhere.”
“Virtual dentistry has become a helpful resource when an in-person visit is not possible and may even spare a trip to a hospital emergency room,” said Jill Purcell, Head of Dental and Vision products for Guardian. “Providing access to this care helps inspire well-being when a member can’t reach their own dentist or doesn’t have one.”
Access to Teledentistry.com entails three straightforward steps. Guardian dental members:
Call 866-979-1116 or login to Guardian’s dedicated portal at https://teledentistry.com/insurance-carriers/guardian/
provide information requested connect with a Teledentistry.com dentist to begin the consultation.
After the consultation, TeleDentistry.com will refer the member to a local in-network dentist for any further treatment.
Guardian members can use the virtual service when they are having a dental emergency and do not have a dentist; need access to a dentist after hours; or need a consult with a dentist without leaving home or while traveling.
Guardian virtual dental care visits don’t replace regular dentist visits. The service is a convenient way for members to triage emergency dental needs no matter where they are and at all hours of the day.
