Teledentistry service was extensively implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic as it decreases the patient-patient and patient-healthcare professionals’ contact, thereby minimizing the risk of disease transmission. The risk of transmission through dental procedures is very higher as the virus spread through aerosols of the mouth, teeth, and around the nose. Hence, dental practices have a higher risk of cross-infections with such viruses. Therefore, it was recommended to consult any dental practices online or in virtual mode. This increased the attention toward teledentistry services. This provided an opportunity for oral care and dental healthcare providers to initiate a new path in dentistry.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, various new players entered the market with innovative and advanced tele-dental solutions to aid remote dental care. Some companies such as Toothpic offer 24/7 access to dental services with top licensed dentists across the world. In addition, the patients have reported that the teledentistry examination is feasible, valid, and saves money and time. According to an article published by Oral Health in August 2021, 75% of dentists reported that their teledentistry platforms were successful. Due to its wide applications, the teledentistry practices are here to stay for long even after post-covid.

Moreover, telemedicine technologies such as teledentistry are considered the most versatile to deliver dental care, dental education, and telemonitoring remotely at a distance. This enables wide access to patient-centric care in remote locations ensuring the safety of patients from viral transmission. Some of the companies in the market have witnessed exponential growth during the COVID-19 pandemic comparing previous years. In addition, the continuing investments in such technologies are expanding the opportunities for new teledentistry solutions in the near future. These factors are anticipated to propel the growth of the market.
