How Value-Based Care Will Change Dentistry's Future

The future of oral health is coming — and value-based care holds many of the keys to success.  

For more than two centuries, dentists have practiced in a fee-for-service reimbursement environment. Workflow, care delivery, business plan, staffing, documentation, health information technology, policies and procedures, and communication have all been designed and implemented around a care and financing model that emphasizes volume over value. But now, government regulations and a growing desire to provide better, more personalized care for patients is driving necessary changes.   

Join us as we discuss the foundations of value-based care and the dental processes and procedures that are ripe for change. We’ll also explore CareQuest Institute’s Three Domain Framework that proposes a new model for dentistry and a case study of what a patient journey can look like when we prioritize value over volume.   

Learning Objectives:  

  • Explain the principles of value-based care.  
  • Identify the components of CareQuest Institute’s Three Domain Framework. 
  • Discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the strengths of value-based care models.
