DentaQuest partners with to expand access to care

DentaQuest and have teamed up to give DentaQuest members access to virtual dental providers at any time. 

In a pilot study at DentaQuest affiliate practices in one state, 30 percent of patients who received care through teledentistry did not need an in-person follow up appointment, according to an Aug. 1 news release shared with Becker's.

Through the partnership, DentaQuest plans to have 24/7 dental services available to both Medicaid and commercial plan members in 20 states. The service is already active for Medicaid and CHIP members in states including Arizona and New Hampshire. 

Teledentistry allows patients to speak with a licensed dentist, as well as receive treatment and oral health education.
