dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was two-fold. First, to survey orthodontists to determine the clinician demographics and practice characteristics that may influence the utilization of teledentistry and/or remote dental monitoring. Second, to describe orthodontists’ opinions and perceived barriers regarding teledentistry and remote dental monitoring. A 30-question survey, approved by the UMKC IRB, was distributed to 2,171 orthodontists by email through the American Association of Orthodontists Partners in Research program. The survey was used to determine the clinician and practice demographic factors that may influence the prevalence of orthodontists utilizing teledentistry and/or remote dental monitoring, orthodontists’ opinions on teledentistry and remote dental monitoring, and perceived barriers of teledentistry and remote dental monitoring. The survey was divided into two domains: orthodontist demographics and orthodontic practice characteristics. Additional questions addressed opinion items such as concerns with teledentistry and remote dental monitoring, treatment that could be conducted using these modalities, and the effects the COVID 19 pandemic had on orthodontists’ perceptions of teledentistry or remote dental monitoring. A significance level of 0.05 was used.
