NEW YORK, Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The risks of not improving children's access to dental care are clear.

"Left untreated, tooth decay or early childhood caries (ECC) lead to consequences that can set young children on a trajectory of academic failure, chronic disease and social isolation." - Children Now/UCLA Report

"The

burden of oral diseases constitutes a major challenge because of the social and economic costs it imposes on society. In children, untreated disease can lead to impaired growth, altered speech, missed school days, difficulty in learning and lowered self-esteem." – Jayanth Kumar, DDS, California State Dental Director

Tooth decay is by far the most common childhood disease. And it's preventable.

How can more children have access to early preventive dental screenings, and improved chances for better oral and overall health?

Brant Herman, CEO and co-founder of dental telehealth startup MouthWatch offers teledentistry and their recently launched turnkey teledentistry platform, TeleDent™ as part of the solution. 

"For National Children's Dental Health Month, we'd like to invite children's health advocates and decision-makers in public health and oral health programs to discover hands-on how teledentistry with TeleDent can expand the reach of preventive screenings for children, in areas where access to care is limited, with tools that are simple to use and transformatively cost-effective."

Underscoring this sense of momentum behind teledentistry, a new study from an oral health research center at State University of New York, Albany saw positive impact from teledentistry across 6 case studies. The Executive Summary highlights:

"The use of teledentistry as a means to improve access to oral health services in areas with inadequate availability of general and specialty dental care is emerging as a practical solution, especially for treatment planning and specialty consultations. A review of the scientific literature on teledentistry found it to be a promising and effective strategy for increasing access to services in both rural and urban areas."

MouthWatch will be attending the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting this February 23-25 at Booth #4137 where they will be showcasing TeleDent. They also offer free consultations on particular use cases and demos of the software through an online signup form.
