Transcend “ordinary” dentistry with safe, convenient, and eco-friendly telehealth service in Berkeley, CA

Telehealth Service Berkeley CA

With a name like “Transcendentist,” we know you expect certain things. We have a thirst for the latest scientific discoveries and dental technologies, which allow us to transcend conventional notions of dentistry. Drs Praj Kamat and Ruhi Sangha are not afraid to introduce innovative approaches in the design of the Transcendentist office in Berkeley, CA, and in the delivery of treatment to keep or restore oral health.

Additionally, as a certified “green” dental practice, Transcendentist has invested in the equipment, processes, products, furnishings, and other initiatives that support the health of the planet. Telehealth Service in Berkeley, CA, complements Transcendentist’s focus on treating the whole person and healing the environment. As with other technologies that Drs Kamat and Sangha have invested in, such as precision cavity detection and digital x-rays, telehealth platforms promote safety, comfort, convenience and patient satisfaction, and environmental health. After all, reduced reliance on transportation to get from “Point A” to “Point B” equates to carbon emissions.

As its heart, “telehealth” refers to providing health care services from a location that is distant or remote to patients. Several different services available at Transcendentist would fall under the “telehealth” category, as our team strives to partner with you regardless of the distance that may separate us. Thanks to the beauty of collaborative software that facilitates virtual consultations and visits with a few taps of our smartphones or mobile devices, you, as a patient, enjoy a seamless experience. The continuity of care achieved with telehealth is exceptional and critical to maintaining the oral health and well-being that you and your family deserve.

As questions and concerns arise during these unprecedented times, Drs Kamat and Sangha have been happy to “meet” with patients virtually to address those queries and assuage those concerns. A small sampling of some of the ways our team has helped other patients and can help you (without missing a beat!) include:

  • “Back-office” matters – We treat you, not “just” your teeth. For this reason, Transcendentist is accessible to discuss matters such as how to pay for superior restorative treatments or cosmetic procedures that may be excluded from coverage by most dental insurance plans. 
  • Preventive and general care – We appreciate that some questions or situations may come up, which require professional guidance but don’t necessarily require urgent or emergency care. If you have any concerns about bleeding on a toothbrush or floss or other changes that you have noticed, we are happy to discuss those with you and even demonstrate potential adjustments to home care techniques. We can do that virtually as if you were sitting across from us at the office.
  • Cosmetic consultation – Let us get a head start on creating the stunning smile that you have always wanted or once had.  You don’t have to wait for the “numbers” positive cases of COVID-19 to subside in the region to get started on your smile makeover. With technology on our side, Drs Kamat or Sangha look forward to discussing what you like (and don’t like so much) about your smile. So, we can maximize the positive and address those features that you feel detract from your appearance. Our doctors can then offer potential options to enhance a facial feature that makes such a difference in your self-confidence and in how others perceive you.
  • Telemedicine urgent care – It is our great privilege at Transcendentist to safely and responsibly relieve patients’ pain and resolve dental emergencies, while also reducing the burden this type of trauma has on our area’s hospitals. Emergency Rooms in Berkeley, CA, and much farther afield continue to be challenged by the current public health crisis. When you turn to a team of dental health professionals, you get the unhurried and appropriate care that you deserve. We don’t specialize in respiratory or cardiovascular conditions, among those areas that ER doctors tend to, and, likewise, we don’t expect Emergency Room personnel to know what is best in our “specialty” area of dentistry.

We should stress that some dental conditions, such as abscesses, can escalate and progress to become systemic infections. If you have a high fever (102 degrees or greater), tender lymph nodes, red streaks leading away from the abscess, or a large abscessed area of more than a half-inch across the face, this is a medical emergency. Seek immediate care.

There is no reason to wait for the care you need to have the healthiest, most attractive smile when a telemedicine and telehealth provider for both non-clinical and clinical services is a mobile device away. Experience the teledentistry and telemedicine benefits for yourself. Book a virtual consultation with either Dr. Kamat or Dr. Sangha today.
