The oral health has an important role in the good general health state. Some populations, including those in detention, have not only increased needs, but also limited access to dental care. Télédent is an oral tele-expertise activity that facilitates the screening and prevention of oral disorders, performing as a complementary health tool for screening. With an intra-oral camera, oral images of the prisoners are recorded and then analyzed by a team from the Oral Medicine Department of the Hospital Henri Mondor, giving the UCSA of Fresnes prison a detailed dental expertise. As a result, Télédent enables a cooperation to improve the screening and oral care of prison inmates at the Fresnes Prison, decreasing costs and increasing the security.
