Why DenScore and How Does it Work?

After practicing dentistry for 14 years, Dr. Gernhofer realized that consumers do not have the right information at their fingertips to make informed decisions about their dental care needs. As is the case with most healthcare professionals, dentists can vary substantially in how they diagnose and treat dental disease. This can lead to people receiving unnecessary, poor quality and impersonalized dental care. DenScore’s symptom checker provides users with guidance that they otherwise may not receive from a dentist, dental insurance plan or a Google search. By offering evidence-based feedback and personalized support, DenScore enables its users to receive the right dental care at the right time.
