The direction of oral healthcare

DentaQuest is one of the largest and most influential dental insurers in the US. DentaQuest makes most of its money from processing dental claims. So it is interested in more dental procedures not less.

Yet where does DentaQuest think oral healthcare is going — see the following infographic. 10 years ago DentaQuest would likely show implants, new techniques for making crowns or improving inflamed gums. Now, it focuses on improving oral health to improve the management of expensive chronic medical conditions.

Improving oral health in diabetics, those with respiratory disease or pre-dementia means delivering these services in medical practices and addressing the oral microbiome. This is just what Prevora facilitates.
