We champion oral health transformation
Our health care system is not built to work for everyone — people of color, those living in rural communities, people with disabilities, older adults, and other historically marginalized groups have been left behind. To achieve better health for all, we need to work together to create a system that is accessible, equitable, and integrated.
As CareQuest Institute, we are pulling forward and expanding upon the strengths and history of the DentaQuest Foundation, DentaQuest Institute, and the nonprofit programs of the DentaQuest Partnership for Oral Health Advancement. With that momentum behind us and a clear goal in front of us, we can broaden our impact and move faster, together, toward a health care system that is designed for everyone.
Our Full Portfolio
We operate as a catalyst for systems change bringing forth ideas and solutions to create a more accessible, equitable, and integrated health system for everyone. We do this through our work in grantmaking, research, health improvement programs, policy and advocacy, and education as well as our leadership in dental benefits, care delivery, and innovation advancements. But we don’t do it alone. Collaboration and partnership are key to achieving our mission — to improve the oral health of all.
Our Five Areas of Activation
We bring forth ideas and solutions to create a more accessible, equitable, and integrated health system for everyone. We partner with thought leaders, health care providers, patients, and stakeholders at all levels to change oral health care through five areas of activation.

Our oral health practices take a unique, industry-leading approach to care. The care delivery team operates 15 oral health practices in three states and is working to expand access by delivering innovative person-centered care in and beyond the dental chair.
Through two dental benefits companies, we serve more than 32 million people in the US who receive oral health coverage and care through Medicaid, Medicare, state exchanges, and commercial programs.
