Telehealth technologies have the potential to improve oral health in Arkansas. Teledentistry, which involves remote examination, diagnosis and treatment, is now widely used by orthodontists across the state, but it is not yet used by most Arkansas dentists. This report is part of a year-long statewide series on oral health produced by Arkansas Public Media and supported by Delta Dental of Arkansas.
