FRISCO, Texas (August 5, 2022) - The health care landscape has seen a drastic change in the last few years. With these changes comes greater adaptations, the biggest of which includes the innovation of virtual health care. DialCare, a Careington affiliate company, provides a suite of telehealth services, including Physician Access, Teledentistry, Mental Wellness, Dialogue Student Counseling and Virtual Vet. As telemedicine quickly became a necessity in 2020 amidst the pandemic, the DialCare team quickly and innovatively responded by launching DialCare Teledentistry, ensuring patients had access to virtual dental care. Through this program, patients have 24/7/365 virtual access to licensed dentists via phone or video consultations for advice and treatment of oral health concerns and second opinions on dental treatment. At the time, DialCare teledentistry was available in 48 states, not including Texas. As a Texas-based company, DialCare was instrumental in the passage of a bill that allowed virtual dental care access to patients across the state.
OUR ROLE IN PASSING THE TELEDENTISTRY BILL INTO A LAW
DialCare President Jeremy Hedrick and the DialCare team worked closely with Sen. Charles Perry and Rep. Stephanie Klick, testifying in support of the bill, attending stakeholder meetings and giving input on each draft of the bill. When Gov. Greg Abbott signed it into law, teledentistry expansion became a bill that had managed to pass through a gridlocked Texas legislative session. DialCare was proud to be a proponent for the bill, and the company now proudly offers teledentistry to organizations of any size or industry as well as individual consumers throughout the state.
