The Montpellier startup e-DENTECH has developed a teledentistry solution for remote oral consultations. Approved after experimentation at Montpellier CHU, the solution is now available for the social-medical sector. A fine example of telemedicine.
Already 80 client establishmentsThe Montpellier CHU has been testing the solution at 16 medical-social or penitentiary establishments since late 2013, with approval from the Occitanie Regional Health Agency.
The Alzheimer clinic, Les Jardins de Sophia in Castelnau le Lez, was the first paying client outside the initial trials. In 2017, the startup worked with the Unapei association to deploy the solution over three years in 40 establishments for handicapped people in three regions in France. In late 2018, about 80 establishments were working with the Montpellier company.
“We have performed over 3,000 consultations since the beginning,” adds Roland Petcu, who has been driving the company’s evangelism effort diligently.
“As part of the Health and Digital sector, e-DENTECH has been assisted by Montpellier BIC since before its launch in 2015, through 2018. Our team of two employees set up their offices in the French Tech Building.”
