Making Dental Care More Convenient for Amerigroup Georgia Members
A Comprehensive Virtual-First Solution Designed to Transform Oral Healthcare
METUCHEN, N.J. BUSINESS WIRE
Improvingoral health equity for underserved and rural communities across the U.S. continues to be a challenge. According to the CDC, Medicaid beneficiaries in Georgia, on average, travel 15 more miles for dental care than their non-Medicaid peers. Low-income, racial/ethnic minorities, and populations facing access to care challenges across the U.S. are all at a higher risk of developing oral health issues.
“Kare Mobile is committed to affordable, comfortable, and convenient dental care in this technology-enabled, hyper-connected, and rapidly evolving digital age”
A new partnership between Dentistry.One, LLC, a virtual-first dental care company; and Kare Mobile Inc., a dental service organization focused on innovation in a direct-to-consumer oral care delivery model, brings together best-in-class virtual dental and mobile dental care to fill gaps in access to care for more than 600,000 Amerigroup members across Georgia.
In an announcement last month, Amerigroup donated two customized dental vans that Kare Mobile will use to travel throughout Georgia in cooperation with local dentists and hygienists to provide preventive and restorative dental care. Dentistry.One will support these efforts by:
- Making care more convenient for patients by eliminating unnecessary in-person appointments;
- Facilitating the scheduling of in-person patient appointments;
- Completing patient screenings and evaluations virtually; and
- Solving the transportation issues facing Medicaid members across Georgia.
“We look forward to supporting Kare Mobile in our shared mission to address the inequity in access to care that exists for many Amerigroup members in Georgia,” said Brant Herman, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of MouthWatch and Dentistry.One.
“Dentistry.One was built to increase patient access to oral healthcare with a convenient virtual front door to dental care, and to provide an ideal solution for organizations dedicated to supporting patient health. We are very excited to now put Dentistry.One to work for Kare Mobile to help Amerigroup members get the care they need and deserve.”
Dentistry.One is a comprehensive virtual-first solution designed to transform oral healthcare and the dental patient care journey. Introduced last month, Dentistry.One was built to provide convenient and simple access to its nationwide network of on-demand dentists, personalized care coordination, oral health coaching, a digital connection between dental and medical care through its proprietary software, and benefits navigation to help patients more easily obtain care.
“Kare Mobile is committed to affordable, comfortable, and convenient dental care in this technology-enabled, hyper-connected, and rapidly evolving digital age,” said Dr. Kwane Watson, Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Kare Mobile Inc. “We’ve witnessed the oral health inequities present in rural and underserved communities firsthand, and we are excited to have Dentistry.One as a virtual dental care partner to help drive increased access to much needed dental care for Amerigroup members throughout Georgia.”
Dentistry.One will begin working with the Kare Mobile team in March 2023.
