In light of the novel coronavirus outbreak, 1Dental has begun a partnership with DialCare Telemedicine services to help you access remote and affordable healthcare in the midst of this pandemic.
1Dental will be offering DialCare Telemedicine services free of charge for the next 90 days with the purchase of our dental savings plans.
How Does DialCare Work?
Members of DialCare Telemedicine get unlimited access to remote doctor consultations with fully-licensed doctors by phone or video chat. Doctors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to diagnose symptoms and prescribe treatments.
Once you have access to the plan, you can schedule a call through DialCare’s website on your computer or download the app on your phone. Each call is only $40.
During your virtual appointment, you will share your symptoms and questions with the doctor and receive advice, diagnosis and treatment from the safety and comfort of your home. Spanish speakers are also available for your doctor consultations.
Using DialCare, your doctor can help you figure out if you have coronavirus or other common conditions, including:
- Respiratory infections
- Sinus infections
- Urinary tract infections
- And more…
Why Is Telemedicine Being Offered by 1Dental?
We believe overall health and dental health affect one another. That’s why we want to offer a service that can help you care for both, particularly during this unprecedented situation. 1Dental will be offering DialCare telemedicine free of charge (a $95 value) with our individual dental savings plans for the next 90 days. Discounted family rates are also available.
“We moved quickly to make sure we could get this product to our customers as soon as possible,” said Aaron McWilliams, marketing director with 1Dental. “We believe this will meet a great need in our country right now for individuals and families who need to speak to a doctor without going to a physical location for care.”
This is following the recent recommendations of health and government officials to use telehealth services (like DialCare) during the coronavirus outbreak to relieve hospital and doctors’ offices. It is also a helpful tool for those who are most at-risk in this pandemic and who have been asked to remain at home:
- Older adults
- People with HIV
- People with asthma
- Pregnant women
- Those already exhibiting coronavirus-like symptoms
But this service is also helpful for anyone else as we all practice social distancing during this time to “flatten the curve.”

Many of us are worried about the pandemic affecting our country right now. We hope this service can help alleviate some of those anxieties. As you start to worry about symptoms you or your family members are exhibiting at home, you can consult with a licensed health professional over the phone or through video chat to find out what may be going on and what treatment you need.
Stay Calm. Stay Home. Take Care of Yourself and Each Other.
