Dr. Kyle Gernhofer – CEO
Dr. Gernhofer has been a dentist for 15 years, and he’s treated thousands of patients while working alongside many providers. As a private practice clinician, he realized that dental performance can vary significantly and from a cost perspective alone, this can have major implications for dental insurers, patients and employers. Because of recent trends in dentistry, there is an increasing need for value-based care innovation, especially in metropolitan areas that have an abundance of dental providers.
DenScore was created to help dental insurers better address the unique challenge of simultaneously serving enrollees, providers, employers and brokers. DenScore is the only reliable value-based dental care tool designed for dental insurers to benefit all of their stakeholders.
Dr. Gernhofer graduated from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 2005. After fulfilling his service as a Naval dental officer, Dr. Gernhofer treated the San Diego community for ten years at Mission Boulevard Dental Group. While in the Navy, he received the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal (COMM) and Navy Achievement Medal (NAM) for his leadership and clinical performance while serving as a dental officer aboard the USS TORTUGA (LSD-46) and Marine Corps Recruiting Depot (MCRD) respectively. As a private practice dentist, Dr. Gernhofer was consistently recognized as one of San Diego’s top dentists by his patients and peers.
