Standardised dental examination and recording
The digitalised examination allows the dentist to provide an accurate diagnosis without physically seeing the patient, the so-called remote diagnosis.
Verified diagnosis requires the possibility to get more opinions quickly and cheaply. Currently, this is not possible because the patient must undergo additional physical examination for each diagnosis with the dentist whose opinion they seek. If a patient wants 5 opinions, she will pay over $500.
In rough terms, every dentist performs a similar examination. But for effective prevention and early diagnosis, a rigorous diagnostic procedure is necessary. To ensure that the dentist is able to spot every important detail through the computer, we have standardised the procedure and outcomes of the dental examination.
The results of the exam necessarily include notes and basic recordings (orthopan and photographs), and may include a number of other documents as needed. The examination is performed using standard equipment that is available to a large number of dentists. The only tool that most dentists does not possess but is easy to reach is a camera.
Digitalised examination as a service is an opportunity for dentists who have invested in imaging equipment, such as a radiograph, intra-oral camera, CBCT scanner, or oral microscope, to repay the equipment more easily. We believe that many dentists will specialise in digitalised examinations for this very reason. This will also make examinations more affordable for patients.
Patients can arrange and pay for a digitalised examination with one of the dentists on the Denther website, or find a dentist themselves and instruct them to perform the examination according to our procedure. Dentists themselves determine the price at which they will perform the examination service.
Standard examination has to produce these records. Patient or their dentist are required to upload all of these to Denther platform in order to get verified diagnosis.
