One Line Pitch: A web-based and mobile application that allows patients to seek dental care immediately and connects them with an available dentist for a fee payable through the platform.
Business Summary: According to the Association of Ontario Health Centres, in 2015 there were nearly 61,000 visits to hospital emergency rooms and over 221,000 visits to physician offices for dental related issues. These patients sought help from the wrong healthcare provider, resulting in delays in obtaining the appropriate dental care. Dental Zoom is a simple and innovative communications platform built for the specific needs and challenges of teledentistry that allows dentists to easily connect with, diagnose, and treat patients with urgent dental issues, and allows patients a simple and cost- effective way to seek care for dental issues.
