Dental Caries Management Initiatives

Rather than trying to prove, we’re trying to improve.

The DentaQuest Partnership for Oral Health Advancement begins by identifying the key areas where a gap exists between what we know and what we do. In other words, we work to isolate areas for improvement where we know a better way to prevent and manage disease exists, but where that knowledge has not yet become a routine part of practice. Working with clinical partners across the country, we then rely on the latest evidence from scientific research, clinical trials, and public health to develop a set of improvement strategies that we believe will help close the gap. We implement those strategies and measure the impact they are having on our desired outcome. Once we develop a level of confidence in a set of improvement strategies, we then package them into a set of protocols, tools, and technology that are disseminated through our Online Learning Center.
