DentaQuest, a national leader in improving oral health, received Certification status in Credentialing and Recredentialing by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to assessing and reporting on the quality of healthcare. This certification status is presented to health care organizations that meet NCQA’s standards in providing high-quality services to their members.
“We are proud to announce this prestigious certification and to be recognized as a high-quality dental insurer by NCQA,” said Fay Donohue, President and Chief Executive Officer at DentaQuest. “DentaQuest is committed to providing our members with the most cost-effective and comprehensive plans.

NCQA‘s certification review process includes on- and off-site evaluations conducted by a team of clinical and managed care experts. The findings are then reviewed and analyzed by an oversight committee of clinicians that assigns a certification status based on the organization’s performance. DentaQuest’s assigned status is effective through 2016.
