Telehealth guidelines in dentistry

Guideline for using telehealth in dentistry during the COVID-19 alert level response

The Dental Council has developed a document to provide guidance to registered oral health practitioners when using telehealth during the period when the COVID-19 alert levels (1-4) apply.

We encourage practitioners who are triaging patients by phone or other digital means to decide whether they require urgent or emergency care, to familiarise themselves with the telehealth guidelines.
