We now have online appointments available with a Pacific Smiles Dentist for patients who cannot or prefer not to attend one of our open locations. Request a teledentistry appointment.
A teledentistry consultation is a video consultation between a patient and a health practitioner.
Every patient’s situation is different and not all patients are able to access face to face care with Covid-19 restrictions in place. Teledentistry will help provide access to care where face to face consultations may not be possible.
To have a teledentistry video consultation with a Dentist practicing from Pacific Smiles Dental or nib Dental Care, you will first speak to one of our Teledentistry coordinators, to determine whether you are suitable for a teledentistry consultation. This will take into consideration your immediate concerns. With any urgent care requirement, you will be referred to your dental centre.
No. You are able to attend a face-to-face consultation with your dentist in the dental centre if you prefer. A teledentistry video consultation will only happen if it is considered safe and suitable, and you are happy to participate in a teledentistry video consultation.
The Dentist will conduct the teledentistry consultation from one of our dental centres. You can participate in the video consultation from your own home.
We have a teledentistry video consultation coordinator who arranges teledentistry video consultations with Dentists.
Submit your appointment request and we call you to schedule an appointment with a Dentist. The appointment will use a secure and encrypted video conferencing link that will not require you to download any software, simply click the link to connect.
