Welcome, DentaQuest Dentist

We respect the contributions of our providers. By providing you with advanced technological tools, we eliminate the administrative burden associated with participating in government-sponsored programs. Beyond representing an act of public service in your community, we want your participation in our network to represent a sound business decision.

EmblemHealth Medicare providers are required to complete the Special Needs Plan (SNP) Model of Care training for each of the Dual Eligible SNPs in which they participate, as mandated by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). Providers who do not complete the training may be removed from the Emblem Health Provider Directory. 

Important Information about EmblemHealth!

DentaQuest began a new partnership in 2017 with EmblemHealth to provide state-of-the-art dental care to NY residents. To support this partnership, DentaQuest has launched a new and improved dental provider portal that features enhanced functionality, improved user interfaces, and innovative tools to support providers in serving EmblemHealth members. Please note: All other New York health plans (Affinity, Fidelis, Healthfirst, etc.) will continue to be supported by DentaQuest’s legacy portal. Please see the how to register link below to register for the new provider portal for EmblemHealth plans.
