The PreventistrySM Approach:
The Results are In!
The PreventistrySM approach works – for everyone. This new way of looking at better oral health brings dentists, patients, and benefits providers together in a uniquely collaborative manner. Through the PreventistrySM approach, we’re seeing substantial improvements in oral health care.
In a Massachusetts study involving a commercial PPO program, a benefits provider is creating data reports for dentists that help patients at higher risk get the treatments they need, when they need them. Dentists are using the reports to reach out to patients who most need recommended preventive treatments. At the same time, patients in this PPO program are receiving educational resources about easy, effective ways to improve their oral health through proactive, preventive measures.
This PreventistrySM philosophy is paying off; in just 12 months, the number of higher-risk youth ages 6 to 18 who received fluoride treatments increased by 30%, while the number of periodontal patients at greater risk who received necessary care also increased by 30%.
This is what the Preventistry approach is all about. Quality care, healthier communities, and a lifetime of smiles.
