IMPACT MODEL

DentaQuest’s purpose as a company to revolutionize oral care by focusing on the three dimensions of prevention, accessibility, and affordability is, of course, self-reinforcing. Regular routine exams and diagnostic procedures reduce the amount of costly surgeries required for advanced disease, thereby reducing ER visits and driving down costs in the entire system. Rewarding providers for value-based care, rather than number of restorative procedures or surgeries performed, also drives down costs. Finally, expanding access by extending dental coverage for Medicare and Medicaid members and by using non-traditional delivery channels (like schools) further lowers the major barriers to oral health - namely, cost and physical distance.

COVID-19 RESPONSE

DentaQuest is collaborating on both short- and long-term teledentistry solutions to enable care during COVID-19 physical distancing.
