Why DenScore and How Does it Work?

After practicing dentistry for 14 years, Dr. Gernhofer realized that more people are at risk of receiving unnecessary, poor quality and/or less personalized dental care. Furthermore, dental benefits can be confusing and they are often underutilized, which leads to poor treatment outcomes and increased healthcare spending. 

DenScore is a dental navigation solution that provides an all-in-one technology/dental insights/plan optimization solution. By leveraging dental claims analytics, consumer feedback and clinical expertise, DenScore enables health plans and carriers to empower their members to make smarter and healthier decisions about their dental care.
