What is Teledentistry and how does Smileneo fit?
Consumers today are living in the age of the “now” economy relying on technology to fulfill their needs quickly and efficiently at the push of a button from the comfort of their home. This behavior is mainly service dominant disrupting all industries from transportation, food and beverage, travel and healthcare.
In the healthcare space, consumers are increasingly having the option to book a doctor consultation and meet with their doctor via a teleconferencing technology tool instead of going for a physical visit: this is what we refer to as telemedicine. Teledentistry is then any doctor meeting or consultation that is happening virtually/remotely to discuss dentistry related topics and using technology tools that allows both doctors and patients to do so efficiently and successfully.
Dental clinics are starting to adopt teledentistry initiative and can do so by:
- Creating their internal digital tool and offer virtual booking and virtual consultation slots for their patients
- Relying on third party technology platform to integrate into their system and establish a teledentistry practice for their patients
What are the benefits of teledentistry?
Teledentistry can have many use cases, here are few benefits for both dental clinics and patients:
- In times where a pandemic took over the world such as COVID-19, patients can still book doctor consultation with their preferred doctor and undergo a consultation from the comfort of their home even during lockdown or quarantine
- Increase booking slots at the clinic as virtual calls can be fulfilled by doctors while not necessarily being present at the clinic which leads to an increase in consultation revenue for the clinics
- Accessibility for both the patient and the doctor. If the doctor or the patient is travelling, they can still have follow up calls scheduled virtually which

Technology is at the heart of our business model and it is what allows us to continuously achieve our mission and vision. All our processes are driven by technology which is the basis of any teledentistry practice such as:
- Online Assessment: patients can quickly fill our online assessment via our website and upload three photos of their teeth to assess whether they are eligible to go through the treatment
- Smileneo Mobile App: creates the next level of convenience by allowing
a. Doctors to remotely monitor the treatment of the patients
b. Patients to chat with the Smileneo team and doctors for any questions or support needed
The Smileneo App allows patients to continue their treatment even if they are traveling or are physically unavailable because our process saves them the recurring visits to the clinics.
As we continue to grow our presence and improve our business process, we are working on becoming the first licensed telehealth platform in the region which will allow us to increase the scope of our work on our platform (website and App) and offer a comprehensive and state-of-the-art teledentistry practice to both our partner clinics and patients.
