24/7 Emergency Dental Care — Whenever and Wherever You Need It

HMSA dental plans now include virtual dental visits at TeleDentistry.com at no added cost. Teledentistry is a benefit for all fully insured HMSA commercial plan members and individual plan members who have an HMSA dental plan. There are no copayments, coinsurances, or deductibles for this service. HMSA dental plans cover up to two teledentistry visits per year.

An easy, convenient, and affordable option for emergency dental care

Emergency rooms are not typically equipped to handle dental emergencies. If you have a dental issue and cannot contact your dentist, you now have 24/7 access to a licensed dentist near you — whether you’re in Hawaii or on the Mainland. You can also contact a TeleDentistry.com dentist if you:

  • Have a dental emergency but don’t have a dentist.
  • Need to consult with a dentist without leaving your home. This can be a helpful option in the event of pandemic restrictions.
  • Have a dental emergency while on vacation, on business, or away from home.

This valuable benefit can save you both time and money.

How to get started

  1. Visit teledentistry.com/hmsa or call 1-866-256-1871. You’ll need to provide your member ID number — you can find it on your dental ID card.
  2. Take photos of the problem area, if necessary
  3. You’ll be connected to a dentist for an emergency dental consultation

If necessary, your virtual dentist will write prescriptions or refer you to a participating HMSA dentist near you or your regular dentist for further care as needed.
