Teledentistry is a combination of telecommunication and dentistry. It is used by information-based technologies and communication systems to deliver dental services. It is a smart way to overcome the distance between health care providers and patients. It can enhance the quality and efficiency of health care and also lower its cost. It has also eliminated differences in oral health care between rural and urban areas. Teledentistry requires a computer with adequate RAM, an Intraoral video camera, digital camera, modem, Internet connection, and IP/ISDN video conferencing solution.
