Abstract:
This study assessed the feasibility of a teledentistry model for teleconsultation and telediagnosis in Residential Aged Care Facilities. Study feasibility was defined by the ability to develop remote treatment plans. Reliability of the remote assessments was assessed by comparing with those performed by traditional face-to-face oral examinations. An intraoral camera was operated by trained teledentistry assistants with the aim of screening residents for oral diseases and pathological conditions. The model was supported by traning and an instructional kit for the introral camera operators. The structure, content and delivery of the program, was evaluated. Residents’ views about the structure, content and delivery of the program were also evaluated. A total of 50 residents participated in this assessment. Results indicated that the proposed teledentistry approach for oral health screening is feasible and reliable as an alternative to traditional oral health examination. Residents expressed high levels of satisfaction with the teledentistry service. This study provides an innovative solution towards closing the service delivery gap in the provision of sustainable oral health care services to underserviced populations (e.g., nursing homes, rural areas).
