WHAT WE DO
DENTAL SOLUTIONS FOR YOUR POPULATION
Total health and dental care costs remain a complex problem burdening both patients and those with the fiduciary responsibility to care for the physical and mental wellbeing of their community.
For years dentistry has been recognized as a core health service, yet bringing quality dentistry to the campus environment has been difficult to master in a manner widely celebrated by all stakeholders. The cost and expertise can be daunting when striving to ensure a sustainable solution.
Dent-Well stepped into the marketplace to provide trusted dental expertise to a historically intricate realm of healthcare. We exist to support the efforts of plan sponsors, administrators, and the parties dedicated to complete and optimal population health outcomes. From implementation to oversight, to quality assurance – our methodical approach ensures net savings without burdensome costs.
EMPLOYER & EMPLOYEE
Our mouth remains the essential health gateway to the body with cardiovascular disease and diabetes scientifically linked to proper oral care. Include the lost work hours per off-campus dental visit, and it only adds to the inefficiencies embedded in the overall cost of quality healthcare.
Our dental offices are a key solution for leading companies aimed at alleviating this problem that works within and enhances, the existing dental benefit.
The Dent-Well platform tracks utilization and treatment trends, patient satisfaction, and health outcomes of the patient community. We regularly update the client with these metrics and together we work to curb dental and medical expenses over time. The objective of our office is to see lower claims coupled with increased prevention and greater in-network utilization where appropriate. We do this by bridging the communication and quality control gap that is so often found between the health services provider and plan sponsor.
Underutilization of routine dental care ultimately leads to more costly and time-consuming issues down the road. These issues can be oral or medical in nature and translate into higher overall costs. Yet, 2+ annual dental visits each year at an off-campus location can result in high absenteeism. When factoring in additional restorative visits the time away from work compounds even further.
When an employee chooses our premier DentWell office they automatically contribute to the organization’s bottom line by recapturing these lost work hours. Instead of taking the typical ½ day away from work for routine and restorative dental appointments, employees stay onsite with convenient access to exceptional services.
Furthermore, with “Presenteeism” (attending work while distracted) issues accounting for an increasing amount of lost work hours our objective is to eliminate oral discomfort as a basis for sustained losses of concentration. Anyone with a toothache can relate to the inability to focus on the task at hand.
Dental is consistently ranked within the top benefit factors weighed by employees considering job offers. What is the average cost of recruiting top talent? With no extra expense the Dent-Well dental office creates a unique benefit in the marketplace and one that has consistently returned praise and appreciation back to the employer.
Dentistry is the most personal form of healthcare we receive. The physical environment must reflect both the priority of state-of-the-art facilities and patient comfort. Since its inception, the Dent-Well platform has ensured a true private practice experience is enjoyed by each patient through the focus on beautiful fixes spaces.
Dent-Well has established itself as the groundbreaking leader in higher education, campus-integrated, dental office programs.
We developed the first dental office of its kind for a major tier-one university and we continue to lead the charge with programs in large and small campuses across the nation.
This unique program has now distinguished itself throughout the country as a landmark model for cooperative higher education partnerships. Our experience serves as the foundation for building a solution that speaks directly to the goals, objectives, and culture of major colleges and universities.
SPECIFIC DENTAL SERVICES
Our expertise in all forms of general dentistry has specific implications for our campus clinic.
A key driver for patients using the dental office remains convenience and comprehensive care. At the Dent-Well office our dentists provide full preventative, basic and major dental treatments.
These treatments can also include orthodontics, endodontics, oral surgery and other specialties. Our patients can have all their dental needs met through the high quality and highly convention onsite office.
FEES & PRICING TO THE UNIVERSITY
For decades our track record shows that oral care services in higher education are truly a "build it and they will come" phenomenon.
The upfront costs can be daunting and the ongoing expertise required to manage a successful dental service program is incredibly specialized.
The full dental program can be implemented and operated at no cost to the University.
More specifically, the Dent-Well dental office is designed as an in-network provider with the insurance carried by the university’s faculty, staff and students.
Therefore, individuals with insurance can rest assured that it will be accepted and processed just like any other dental office.
WORK SITE SOLUTIONS
The roots and convictions of DentWell remain with the fixed boutique office. However, in specific circumstances, mobile pop-up solutions can close the gap between needed oral care and employees who struggle with accessibility to a dental office.
When a partner employer's work-site falls below the minimum headcount threshold for a fixed office we are able to bring the services via one of our temporary, pop-up, clinics. While or core conviction and expertise remain the fixed office solution, we recognize that mobile services often fit the needs of specific employer/employee circumstances.
GERIATRIC DENTAL CARE
We developed full-service dental care on the go for assisted living, independent living, and memory care communities.
The dental provider’s expertise in all forms of general dentistry, especially geriatric care, has specific implications for our mobile solutions. One’s oral health is crucial to maximizing comfort and overall quality of life. The convenience of traditional dental care such as preventative, basic, and major dental treatment in the comfort of one’s own home is a value every senior patient should have.
QUALITY WITHOUT COMPROMISE
Being disabled, homebound, or institutionalized should not be an inconvenience for receiving quality dental care. Similarly, simplifying your life may mean that time away from home is best spent with loved ones. Our DentWell mobile solutions are key for leading senior care providers aimed at alleviating this problem.
This program has now distinguished itself throughout the country as a landmark model for cooperative partnerships with senior care facilities. Our experience serves as the foundation for building a solution that speaks directly to the goals, objectives, and culture of major senior communities
The care team at each Dent-Well® office provides preventative, basic, and major dental care.
Dental specialties are also available including endodontic, oral surgery, and orthodontic treatment. Unlike many dental offices, our locations incorporate best practices in “gentle dentistry”, chronic disease detection, and nutritional counseling.
Electronic medical records provide for 24/7/365 access to HIPAA compliant patient information, seamless care across specialties, and full digital imaging. For convenience, DentWell also provides online appointment scheduling when requested and automated appointment reminders designed to reduce time away from work, study and life!
Quality Without Compromise
The improved oral hygiene of our patients and the smiles on their faces contribute to the confidence of each individual and the morale of the client community.
Each member of the community we treat adds to the wellbeing and health of the client campus.
With our patient-focused approach and in-network service, patients no longer have to weigh the quality and price of accessible dental practices.
Clinical expertise aside, personal assistance with individual treatment plans and comprehensive care is available around the clock.
The staffing process for our offices is meticulously focused on recruiting professionals highly experienced in clinical care with a gifted chair-side manner.
We strive to curb poor health choices that increase the frequency and severity of adverse health outcomes. As a result, a culture of total health is fostered that significantly lowers the cost of current and future healthcare.
