Virtual Dentistry Services
Below is information about virtual dentistry services from Delta Dental. It applies only to members that are on the DPPO plan. While dental offices are open and seeing patients, some members may still be hesitant to go out. Do you have a dental emergency, or want a second opinion? If so, these services may be a solution for these individuals. All dentists are in-network so members don't need to worry about that.
Toothpic: Toothpic is a photo-based teledentistry app for PPO™ and Premier ® plan members that offers virtual dental screenings from a Delta Dental dentist. The pictures are sent to a network provider for consultation, and they receive a response within 24 hours. This should not be used for emergency purposes and an e-prescription, if needed, is not available with this service.
Virtual Consult: Eligible members will be connected to a network dentist virtually if they have a dental emergency and cannot get into the dental office right away. With this service, the provider can submit an e-prescription if one is needed.
