Coronavirus is excuse for dental office to move to telehealth

Twin Cities Business interviewed the Minnesota Head & Neck Pain Clinic in Plymouth about their coronavirus-inspired move to telehealth and the door it opens to future telehealth options…

We’re now able to see new patient consultations as well as provide care for our existing patients. I’m hopeful that the government will recognize that telemedicine options improved better access of care. With the deregulation and commitment of insurers to cover the cost of telehealth visits this has the potential to continue an outreach clinic for those in rural or outstate areas or for those that don’t have easy access to care. The nature of what we offer for orofacial pain, TMJ disorders and headaches is unique. I hope that once the acute public health issues that we’re experiencing with the Covid-19 virus subside, we’ll be able to continue to offer these services and improve access to care.
