We are excited to announce that we are now offering VIRTUAL (online) TMJ and sleep exams and consults from the safety, comfort and convenience of your own home.
We have been working hard to expand access to our patients and offer a more convenient alternative to coming into the clinic. This will also help keep all of our patients and staff safer from potential exposure to COVID-19 or other illnesses.
We now have a robust and secure telemedicine program up and running. We have been pleased with our first few virtual appointments and wanted to let you know what you can expect during these appointments.
- You will be able to discuss your symptoms, progress, and concerns, and you will be able to ask questions just like if you were at the clinic.
- The doctor will perform an evaluation virtually, discuss results, and give you any needed referrals. We will have any materials for the appointment mailed or emailed to you.
- The doctor will determine if an in-person appointment is needed, which may be required to address any appliance adjustments, or to perform any injections or other therapeutic measures.
- In-clinic appointments would be needed for any broken appliances or appliances that need adjustments; however, your in-clinic appointment time will be greatly reduced if we are able to complete the exam portion of the appointment virtually.
We anticipate maintaining virtual appointments as part of our care as a way to provide more convenient and time-saving access for our patients.
How do I schedule my virtual appointment?
We are working on future options to request or schedule appointments online, but in the meantime you can call us at (651) 642-1013 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your virtual appointment scheduled.
We are using a website called “doxy.me” and a Youtube video link is below for you to see how this works! If you are uncomfortable using the website or this technology, or you do not have a strong internet or cellular connection, we can also accomplish most of your appointment via a phone call and emailing some photos for which we will send you specific instructions. Please see the video link below, and call our office to find out more about this exciting new option!
