AUTHOR(S): Jitendra Sharan, Uday Hemant Barhate and Ashok Kumar Jena
ABSTRACT:The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has imposed severe restrictions where all healthcare facilities except emergency services were either curtailed or suspended. Teleconsultation at that point time was the only mode to get in touch with the consultant for health care needs. Further teledentistry can enhance access to oral health care, increase the provision of oral health care, and reduce cost. This paper gives an insight into teledentistry practice at the Department of Dentistry, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, Bhubaneswar, India, a tertiary care hospital during the covid pandemic and subsequent lockdowns.
