The Virtual Dental Home

The Virtual Dental Home

New advances in technology are announced every day, but often overlooked is the opportunity to turn these advances into better oral health for underserved children and adults. The Virtual Dental Home, being demonstrated by the Pacific Center for Special Care at the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry (Pacific), combines technological advances with innovations in workforce to reach underserved children and adults with the dental care they need. And now—thanks to groundbreaking legislation enacted in 2014—the Virtual Dental Home has the potential to become a sustainable and scalable model for delivering dental care.
