How It Works
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: https://vimeo.com/342453720
Email the patient’s name and your pictures to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please include any questions or concerns you have in your email.
For our Invisalign patients, please include the number of the aligner that you are currently wearing.
Dr. Jones will review your photos and your email. We will be back in touch with the next steps.
VERY IMPORTANT: When we send you an email, or you send us an email, the information sent is not encrypted. That means a third party may be able to access the information and read it since it is transmitted over the Internet. And, 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.
Most popular email services (ex. Hotmail®, Gmail®, Yahoo®) 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.
