A Statement on COVID-19

CareQuest Institute for Oral Health continues to focus on the goal of achieving oral health for all during this extraordinary social, economic and health care crisis. We remain steadfast in our mission – to revolutionize oral health to create an effective and equitable system that results in improved oral health and well-being for everyone – and we are working hard to bring you critically important content at an accelerated pace. As we rise to meet the challenges of an ever-changing national emergency, we commit to helping you stay informed, educated and prepared during this uncertain time.

Sign up for updates on our announcements and free webinars.


We are conducting webinars with industry and internal experts on a regular cadence to educate participants on important COVID-19 related topics such as Infection Control and Preventive Care During a National Health Care Crisis or Teledentistry: Providing Alternative Care During a Public Health Crisis. Visit our Webinars page for a full list of recordings and slides. Free CE credit is offered for select webinars.


Alternative methods to providing care are taking center stage as providers and patients still need to address health care needs while the nation is practicing social distancing. Our latest Communications Brief addresses how state policy-makers can enable technology and tools such as teledentistry to maintain access to oral health. For a deeper look into how teledentistry can benefit patients, providers and states during this critical and extraordinary time, read our White Paper and listen to our webinar. All available here.

The time to adapt to a new way of delivering and receiving oral health care is now and our Three Domain Framework outlines a new model in dentistry, a roadmap for the future that will be cost-effective, efficient and more equitable. In addition, our recent reports address how dental providers feel about the impact of COVID-19 on infection control, financial sustainability, alternative methods to care such as teledentistry and more.
