DentaQuest ranked highest with an 805 rating on a 1,000-point scale, which is 30 points above the report average and 21 points ahead of the next ranked plan. The organization did particularly well in plan cost and communication.

“Achieving this top rating for a third year is energizing and reflects the commitment each DentaQuest employee makes to the people and communities we serve,” said Steve Pollock, president and chief executive officer of DentaQuest. “I’m particularly proud of everyone working at our customer contact centers, as they work directly with our members and make this recognition possible.”

Pollock points to the company’s continued investment in technology and person-centered care solutions as reasons for the high customer satisfaction. “While it is incredibly gratifying to see the high satisfaction among our members, we know that true success means ensuring everyone has access to quality oral health care,” Pollock said. “Our Preventistry™ platform, which is a prevention-based approach that defines oral health as more than visits to the dentist, will ultimately improve oral health for all.”

As part of DentaQuest’s Preventistry platform, the company plans to fundamentally transform oral health by:

Reinventing care by focusing on prevention; Paying for value and outcomes; Advocating for greater access to oral health care for all; and Investing in innovations and technologies that make care more accessible and the patient experience more integrated.
