These principles reflect DentaQuest Foundation beliefs about the role of philanthropy and our involvement with partners and stakeholders. This is what guides what we do, why we do it, and how we do it.
The DentaQuest Foundation’s partner in its mission to improve oral health is the DentaQuest Institute. Working with clinical oral health care partners, the DentaQuest Institute is focused on quality, efficiency and effectiveness of oral health services in all care environments, including safety net dental programs, private dental offices and hospital-based clinics. The Institute works to take advances in oral health science “the final mile” from the centers of research to the dental office, helping dental care providers emphasize prevention, disease management and accountability. The goal is for patients to get the right care, at the right time, at the right cost, for the right outcome.
The DentaQuest Foundation is an affiliate of DentaQuest, one of America’s leading oral health companies, offering prevention-focused dental benefits and program administration to 18 million individuals across the United States who have coverage through state programs, health plans, groups, or individual plans. DentaQuest is working with partners across the country to prevent oral disease, improving the likelihood that people will maintain their teeth in good health for their entire lives.
