DentaQuest encourages dental providers to participate in cultural competency training. 

DentaQuest places great emphasis on the wellness of its Members. A large part of quality health care delivery is treating the whole patient and not just the medical condition. Competency to differing cultural influences, beliefs and backgrounds, can improve a Provider’s relationship with Members and in the long run the health and wellness of the Members themselves.
