IdeateLABs Announces New UCLA Study Results on Teledentistry and the Impacts on Latinos

LOS ANGELES, CA – Today IdeateLABs and the University of California Los Angeles Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture announced the findings of their study on teledentistry and tele-orthodontics in the Latino community. The study finds that teledentistry options provide critical access and affordable oral care that is currently lacking for many in the Latino community.

 

The study was led by Dr. David Hayes-Bautista, a distinguished Professor of Medicine and Director of the Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture at UCLA, and was commissioned by Los Angeles-based IdeateLABs.  

 

“Lack of Latino dentists, lack of insurance, high costs makes dentistry inaccessible to Latino Communities.  Teledentisty may provide access and affordable options for underserved communities,” Dr. Hayes-Bautista said.
