In this year’s first issue, we published “Telemedicine in dentistry as the gold standard of improving access to oral health care” [1]. The Editorial Office has received several readers’ requests to provide more information about the telemedicine systems used in dentistry. I have planned this presentation for this year’s last issue. In order to make the presentation more compelling, I have asked for an ad page from both Dr. Jerry Herman, DDS, New York City, NY 10022 for TeleDent by MouthWatch, and Dr. Robert Clark, DDS of Liverpool, NY 13090 for DrQuickLook system. Both had a similar response, teledentistry systems were conceived and promoted only in the US. They are not interested in making their  systems known in Europe because they do not know the dental market and have no distributors.
When accessing the American Dental Association website in the ADA Dental Product Guide for the Cameras, Intra and Extra Oral category, among the 17 Product Profile, one comes across DrQuickLook ™ Intraoral Dental Viewer Vendor: DrQuickLook [2].
If we visit https://drquicklook.com/[3] we notice two profile products:
• DrQuickLook SD Plus Intraoral Camera
• DrQuickLook PDA Tablet
DrQuickLook SD Plus Intraoral Camera
Intraoral SD and SD Plus cameras allow dentists to capture and save high-quality intraoral images on a standard SD card. The images are viewed and examined together with the patients on a 5-inch touchscreen. They help the patient to become aware of their own clinical condition and to better understand the dental treatment recommended.
The cameras are easy to handle, feature an intuitive touch screen and switching buttons. The cameras work without a computer, any external software or a USB cable. SD Plus includes a FaceCam to capture extra-oral images. Images can be easily transferred to the desktop computer and the patient file, regardless of the patient management software. The necessary visual evidence for patient education is thus obtained. An optional patient education package with more than 30 videos and slideshows is available.
DrQuickLook PDA Tablet PDA Tablet is a unique system that combines intraoral imaging and patient education, enhancing patient care and saving time for clinicians. Based on a Microsoft Surface3 tablet, it can capture high-quality intra- and extra-high quality images that can be saved in the included software and transferred to the current patient  management solution. PDA software includes features such as quad viewing as well as draw on screen, making it an ideal show and tell device to help patients understand the diagnosis and say yes to the treatment plan proposed. The system includes the informed consent and post-op videos as well as more than 60 patient education videos. DrQuickLook ™ systems are recommended to be used in the following specialties: Dental Public Health, Endodontics, General Dentistry, Oral/ Maxillofacial Pathology, Oral/
Maxillofacial Radiology, Oral/ Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodontics, Prosthodontics.
We look forward to the new edition of IDS 2019 in Cologne to evaluate together what new teledentistry systems are offered to us by the producers.
