Join our Webinar: “On the Frontlines of Medical -Dental Integration”

By Steve Pollock, Chief Operating Officer, DentaQuest

There is increasing evidence demonstrating the relationship between oral and overall health, yet many in the industry don’t realize that in addition to improved health for members, medical and dental collaboration also allows for better care management and thus reduced costs. 

On Wednesday, January 28, 2015 at 1:30 PM CT, I am hosting a webinar to discuss how health plans can use ancillary benefits like dental to grow their market share and control medical costs. I will be joined by Dr. John Luther, Chief Dental Officer for DentaQuest, who will speak about the scientific evidence to illustrate the centrality of good dental health to overall health and Dr. Justin Cramer, Chief Medical Officer at MissouriCare, who will speak about MissouriCare’s first-hand experience with medical dental integration.

The webinar will explore the unique opportunities that exist for health plans seeking to grow their market share by integrating dental benefits into health plan offerings and the healthcare insurance industry’s changing market dynamics.   Through this first-hand account of the challenges and benefits of medical dental integration, attendees will learn strategies to successfully implement the concept.

I encourage you to join us to gain more insight into what I consider to be one of the most important areas of growth for our industry. You can also learn about the benefits of medical dental integration by following this blog series on Oral Health Matters, “Why This Matters to Me.”
