DentaQuest’s Cheryl Polmatier Named to Women in DSO®️ Advisory Board

Her dedication to advancing women’s leadership in oral health care aligns with both organizations’ goal to grow and promote female leaders

Cheryl Polmatier, assistant vice president of strategic network solutions at DentaQuest, recently joined the advisory board of Women in DSO®, emphasizing a personal and professional commitment to advancing female leadership in the dental industry.

Women in DSO is an organization committed to increasing and promoting bright women within the dental service organization (DSO) space: women who are currently leading, managing, directing, supporting, and developing the industry's most progressive and high-performing dental practice groups. Rooted in outcomes-based solutions designed to increase access to care for a variety of populations, DentaQuest, part of Sun Life U.S., is a supporting sponsor of Women in DSO.

“Elevating trailblazing women in the dental industry is incredibly important and something I’m deeply passionate about,” Cheryl said. “As our industry continues to evolve, progressive leadership and fresh perspectives — especially from women — will propel business innovations and improvements for both payors and DSOs. I’ve experienced firsthand how a community of this kind can bolster a woman’s career, and I’m thrilled to lend my expertise and encouragement to Women in DSO.”

Cheryl joins the advisory board following her engagement with Women in DSO through her work collaborating with DSO executives and her past participation in leadership panels hosted by the organization.

"Our Advisory Board is thrilled to welcome Cheryl and DentaQuest" said Theresa Schekirke, Vice Chair of Women in DSO. "DentaQuest is our first Payor member and Cheryl's passion for integrating processes and optimizing efficiencies between payor and DSOs is already making a difference. Her panel discussion on credentialing was our best attended and most viewed by several multiples."

Cheryl will continue her engagement with the organization at the Women in DSO annual conference where she will join other industry experts on stage discussing Revenue Cycle Management.

With expertise from more than 25 years in the payor industry and 17 years at DentaQuest, Cheryl currently oversees DentaQuest’s national dental network recruitment efforts, dental home and value-based care programs, and credentialing operations.
