Important Dentist Information Regarding TennCare
DentaQuest began administration of the TennCare Medicaid dental benefits program on October 1, 2013. One of the most important duties assigned to DentaQuest was to contract with Tennessee providers to create a network to meet the state’s requirements for appropriate access while also ensuring high-quality, efficient dental care for eligible TennCare beneficiaries.
In creating this network, DentaQuest invited eligible dentists across the state to participate in an appropriately sized network. We have finalized contracts with providers across the state to meet appropriate access requirements and have notified providers who were not invited to participate.
Throughout the length of our contract with TennCare, we will continually evaluate the network and providers to ensure appropriate access, quality and efficiency. Toward that end and depending on need, we may extend invitations to additional providers.
