eDental Health

The background of eDentalHealth is the use of technology and electronic communication to support the delivery and management of dental healthcare services. eDentalHealth offers the rich potential of supplementing traditional delivery of services and channels of communication in ways that extend our ability to meet the needs of our patients. Benefits include enhanced access to information and resources, empowerment of patients to make informed healthcare decisions, streamlined organizational processes and transactions, and improved quality, value, and patient satisfaction.  

The goal of the eDentalHealth Task Force  chartered in April 2005, is composed of a multidisciplinary team of subject matter experts in critical areas, whose purpose is to support and strengthen the development and implementation of eDentalHealth initiatives and policies.
