Virtual Dental Consultations in San Diego, CA

Since 2020, many doctors have needed to conduct a large portion of their patient consultations online or over the phone.

Evaluations or consultations can be done virtually, reducing the necessity for face to face appointments.

La Jolla Cosmetic Dentistry has developed a protocol that allows Dr. Kohani to accurately evaluate patients online.

While there are certain limits to virtual consultations, our thorough process offers convenient, if not necessary, access to our well-respected and comprehensive San Diego dentist.

How Does a Virtual Dental Consultation Work?

When submitting a virtual consultation request via our submissions pages, you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire. This information is vital for our team to have prior to your virtual consultation.

When scheduling your virtual visit, a member of our friendly and helpful staff will ask about any questions, concerns, or symptoms you have, along with important instructions on preparing for your consultation.

You will be required to provide La Jolla Cosmetic Dentistry with x-rays, photos, and any related dental records (ie. scans, models,) prior to your visit.

You will be instructed on the angles needed for the photos.

Dr. Kohani carefully reviews all the information we receive from you, and our team arranges a confidential and secure video conference for the scheduled day and time.

All you have to do (besides having an internet connection and smartphone or laptop) is find a comfortable, well-lit, quiet, private area and be ready for your virtual dental consultation.

Why Choose a Virtual Dental Consultation?

While in-person office visits have advantages, our video appointments offer several benefits, including:

Convenience – The most popular benefit of a virtual appointment is being able to remain in the comfort of your home while you speak to Dr. Kohani.

Efficiency – Using a smartphone for the video visit allows you to stay close to work and have your consultation during a break.

Access – Dr. Kohani offers a wide range of top-quality dental care for a diverse patient population. Virtual dental consultations provide patients who have problems with transportation or mobility, as well as those who travel from out of town for procedures, easier access to their dentist.

Referrals – While Dr. Kohani can treat almost any patient with dental concerns, in the rare case that he requests a second opinion or thinks a referral is best, a virtual dental visit can save the patient time and money.

In-Office Follow-Up Dental Visits

Depending on Dr. Kohani’s evaluation of your oral health and the appearance of your smile, he will create a custom treatment plan to meet your dental needs. Whether you are experiencing discomfort or have cosmetic concerns, this will almost always involve you coming to our San Diego dental office.

Before your video consultation ends, you will be directed to our front office staff to schedule a follow-up or in-office procedure appointment.

Depending on your treatment plan, you may receive one or more of the following services during your visit:

Orthodontic
Cosmetic dental care

General dental care

Tooth restoration and replacement

These services may involve treatments to get your teeth whiter, straighter, and healthier or repair structural damage to your smile.

Before beginning any procedure, Dr. Kohani uses advanced in-office equipment, like intraoral cameras and other imaging techniques, to validate his initial diagnosis and treatment plan.
