Since the coronavirus outbreak, most dental practices have been forced to start offering teledentistry services to their patients, which involves seeing patients online without the need for physical presence. However, this may not work for everyone and there's a risk of loss of human touch.

Dr. Dan German believes that dentists and orthodontists can still provide quality care to their patients at a lower cost through teledentistry. So, he devised a system to operationalize the teledentistry practice to be more efficient and effective.

Dr. Dan German, the Founder, CEO, and Chief Orthodontist at orthobrain®, joins Craig Weiss and Blair Feldman in this week's episode of In Your Face Podcast to talk about the role of teledentistry in current and future orthodontic treatments. He also talks about his work of helping dentists and orthodontists deliver orthodontic care with confidence and how his mindset of being a dentist first has helped grow his practice.
