Dr. Shieh and her team understand that it’s not always easy to visit our office for an in-person consultation especially for out-of-town patients. That’s why we offer our patients two virtual consultation options. Many of our domestic and international patients have taken advantage of this service.
Virtual consultation is time saving whether you are out of state (Pennsylvania) or out of the country. For your convenience, we use the most familiar and popular internet communication applications when doing a virtual consultation. Your smile transformation and facial esthetic virtual consultation can be conducted via:
ZOOM video conferencing
FaceTime (iPhone or iPad users)
Getting Started with Your Virtual Consultation
The first step is to register as a new patient by completing our new patient online forms HERE and then make your $50 virtual consult purchase payment to let us know of your serious interest in booking a virtual consultation with Dr. Shieh.
Once we've received your virtual consultation payment and new patient registration, one of our Smile Team members will reach out to you within 24 hours to provide further instructions and to get you scheduled at a date and time that is convenient for you. Our virtual consultation can range from 30 - 60 minutes to address your goals and concerns.
All medical information and pictures that you provide are treated with respect and confidentiality. Everyone on our team undergoes periodic training so that we understand and are compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This includes all related government rules and regulations, especially those regarding the “Privacy Rules.”
Your virtual consultation should not be taken as your final and accurate treatment plan proposal as your oral conditions may have changed when we finally meet you in person.
IMPORTANT: your virtual consultation will/can not substitute in place your actual in-person consultation when you decided to choose Dr. Shieh as your provider. The $50 virtual consultation fee is non-refundable and can not be used to credit towards the total cost of your treatment proposal. When you decide to choose Dr. Shieh as your provider, an additional in-person $100 comprehensive consultation and exam will be required prior to your final treatment plan proposal.
