While we all patiently wait out the COVID-19 pandemic, many people are worried about the everyday issues of our lives like doctor and dentist appointments, veterinarian visits, and what to do when there’s a leak in your dishwasher.
And, what do you do if a toothache flares up?
Just recently a company called dentalcorp, considered Canada’s largest network of dental practices, announced a nationwide launch of a free virtual dental triage service in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Accessible through hellodent.com, this online directory connects people with practices in dentalcorp’s network to patients who are then virtually screened by local dentists in their province through secure online chat, audio or video channels, where they can describe their symptoms, receive prompt diagnoses, and, where appropriate, be prescribed medication.
