Virtual Checkup

How It Works

Step 1

Take 5 photos of your teeth at the angles shown below.

For our Invisalign Patients – Please take the set of photos twice – One set of photos with the aligners in and one set with the aligners out.  You will have 10 photos total.  

This video will show you how to do it:

Step 2

Email the patient’s name and your pictures to us at

Please include a good phone number to contact you at once we have reviewed your photos. Please also include any specific concerns you have about your or your child's teeth.

For our Invisalign patients, please also include the number of the aligner that you are currently wearing. Also, please let us know if you have any food traps between your teeth. Be as specific as possible.

Step 3

Dr. Jones will review your photos and your email. We will be back in touch with the next steps.


VERY IMPORTANT:  Our office uses encryption when we send emails to our patients. However, when you send us an email, the information sent may not be encrypted. That means a third party may be able to access the information and read it since it is transmitted over the Internet. And, after you receive an email, someone may be able to access your email account and read it.

HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.

HIPAA was passed by the U.S. government in 1996 in order to establish privacy and security protections for health information

Information stored on our computers is encrypted.

Many popular email services do not utilize encrypted email.

Email is a very popular and convenient way to communicate for a lot of people, so in their latest modification to the HIPAA act, the federal government provided guidance on email and HIPAA. The guidelines state that if a patient has been made aware of the risks of unencrypted email, and that same patient provides consent to receive health information via email, then a health entity may send that patient personal medical information via unencrypted email.
