Introducing the DentaQuest Partnership for Oral Health Advancement

We are passionate about and committed to revolutionizing oral health to create an effective and equitable system that results in improved oral health and well-being for everyone.

As part of our evolution and continued efforts to make a positive social impact, DentaQuest has engaged in a strategic process to leverage and integrate our pursuit of social change. In the past, the DentaQuest Foundation and DentaQuest Institute have worked separately in support of our mission to improve the oral health of all. We have taken bold steps to integrate the two organizations by creating the DentaQuest Partnership for Oral Health Advancement, which officially launched in 2019.
