Invisalign Treatment During Coronavirus Restrictions
Given the unprecedented situation, with patient access to the practice becoming more difficult, our priorities have shifted to mirror your most pressing needs: continue the care of our patients.
Monitoring your Orthodontic Treatment
To be able to have our patients continue their Invisalign treatment during these uncertain times and during these restrictions, we will introduce virtual aligner reviews using the Dental Monitoring (DM) app – simpler and more immediate solutions to assess, monitor treatment, and communicate with our patients as much as needed.
The DM app is prescribed by our doctors for patients who are in, or about to begin orthodontic treatment. Our patients can download the DM app on their mobile phones from the App Store or Google Play.
Dental Monitoring will allow our patient to continue their Invisalign treatment and be monitored closely from the comfort and safety of their own home, whilst allowing us to ensure your treatment progresses and ends on time, even with the limitations imposed with the Covid 19 restriction guidelines.
A Seamless Virtual Experience
With the DM app on your iOS and Android phone, you will be able to capture your Invisalign treatment progress.
You’ll be able to communicate with our team virtually and
- Stay SAFE reducing your risk of infection with social distancing and self-isolation;
- Save time not having to drive to the dental practice;
- Save on fuel costs; and
- Avoid parking issues
Keep Your Treatment on Track with Fewer Appointments
Thanks to automated or live messaging, we can control your treatment remotely and guide you through all stages of your Invisalign progress.
How does Dental Monitoring (DM) work?
- Our patients use the app to take intraoral selfies with their smartphone whilst using the DM cheek retractors and / or scan box.
- Photos are then automatically shared with the dentist.
- Our team virtually monitors your progress
How Much Does Dental Monitoring (DM) Cost?
Dental Monitoring charges a fee of $15.95 plus GST per month, per patient to collect and process the data and to make this data available to our dentists so they can monitor your Invisalign progress. They also charge $59 for the new scan box and grey cheek retractors.
The prices above are “at cost” to our patients, with NO additional changes from Dentique Dental Spa. However, to minimise our administration overheads, we will be processing the DM fees in blocks of six months, or less, if your treatment is shorter than this.
You can purchase the new scan box and grey cheek retractors online from the DM shop at: https://shop-us.dental-monitoring.com/
Alternatively, we have a limited supply of the original blue DM cheek retractors that you can use instead of the scan box and grey cheek retractors. These are available on a first in, first serve basis at a cost of $15.00 plus GST.
We will be able to post your future aligners, Dental Monitoring instructions and the blue cheek retractors as soon as we receive your orders. We request these orders be done via e-mail. We can process payments via phone and post them Express with Australia Post. The postage cost is $15.00.
Please note that if we do run out of the blue check retractors, these are no longer available, and you will need to use the scan box with the grey cheek retractors and purchase these from the DM online store.
Our dentists will be available for virtual consultations and I will be sharing in another e-mail more about this process.
Please feel free to e-mail us and let us know of any other questions that you may have.
Stay safe, we are in this together and we will continue to look after you
