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 result in people receiving dental care that isn’t in their best interests. DenScore’s web-based application provides users with personalized guidance that they may not receive from a dentist, insurance plan or online search. DenScore users get answers to their most pressing dental needs and curated tips on how to receive high quality and affordable dental care at the right time.
