Doxy.me is a free service that is quite user friendly. It does not require the patient to sign up or download anything. If telephone conversation is not sufficient, this option allows for face-to-face conversation, where you may be able to make a better initial diagnosis of your patient's condition.
If you feel that your patient would benefit from a tele-dentistry consult from one of the dentists on call, we would be happy to work with you and help you out. Please send a referral, and our administrative assistants will set up an appointment between your patient and the CEDC dentist on call following your concerns and background information.
