Dr. Helgeson Co-Presenting on Teledentistry at 2018 ADA Conference

May 16, 2018

along with Dr. Paul Glassman, a professor of dental practice at the University of the Pacific's Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry, and Dr. Steven Geiermann, Senior Manager, Access, Community Oral Health Infrastructure and Capacity.

Dr. Michael Helgeson, chief executive officer of Apple Tree Dental, said he plans to discuss Apple Tree's teledentistry in Minnesota. "Since 2002 our teams have been using teledentistry technologies to connect dental hygienists working in Head Start centers, schools, nursing homes and other sites with supervising dentists," Dr. Helgeson said. "Teledentistry facilitates diagnostic, preventive and restorative dental services, and makes it possible for our dental teams to work more efficiently. With assessment and prevention services delivered by hygienists and evaluations completed via teledentistry, our dentists are able to focus on restorative, surgical and prosthodontic procedures when they are providing onsite care. It's a win-win for our patients and for our teams." Read more at

The course is called "Using Telehealth Technology to Reach Under-served Populations" and will be presented at ADA 2018  - America's Dental Meeting on Thursday, October 18th in Honolulu, Hawaii. Find course registration information at
