“Working in healthcare over the last decade I’ve seen many areas where health disparities exist and one of the greatest gaps is in access to oral healthcare,” said Jonash. “It’s a silent epidemic that was identified long ago, but little is being done about it. I am excited to be able to provide such a high-quality, patient-centric service that meets more people where they are today and helps to improve their overall health.”
Virtudent brings diagnostic and preventive services typically performed at a dentist’s office, including a complete oral health exam, cleaning and X-rays, to the patient’s workplace using a proprietary portable dental system. Experienced dentists and advisors from top dental schools including Boston University Dental School, Columbia Dental, Harvard School of Dental Medicine, Johns Hopkins and Tufts Dental School provide clinical oversight and review all Virtudent patient cases, assessments and X-rays. Virtudent’s experienced, degreed dental hygienists and dentists are all licensed in the state they serve and receive rigorous training in Virtudent’s proprietary solution and patient care techniques.
In New England, Virtudent operates in over 100 workplaces, including Dunkin’ Brands, Microsoft and Wayfair.
