Abstract

It has been reported that in the US, there are 4,230 geographic areas that experience dental care shortage, many of which are rural or remote areas without dental professionals. Some researchers have suggested that teledentistry might be a solution to this problem, especially in effective screening for dental caries in young children. Teledentistry is the use of information technology and telecommunica-tions for dental care, consultation, education, and public awareness; teledentistry is similar to other types of telehealth. Dental hygienists can perform clinical screen-ings for carious lesions, yet in some states, dental hygienists are not permitted to do so by law. Once a patient has been screened by a dentist, the dentist may authorize the dental hygienist to perform specific functions under –general supervision,— meaning that the dental hygienist can perform only those functions authorized.
