    How It Works

    1

    Complete Enrollment Form

    2

    Schedule Facility Visit

    We would work with you to go over the facesheets and scheduling input as to which day work best for your Social Worker. Scheduling will also need to accommodate whether the nursing home will be providing or have a room available for our team with water and electricity. We generally will need the assistance from the staff on the assessment day to bring the patients to and from their respective rooms if assigned. If not, we are able to provide assessments within the resident’s room at the request of the facility.

    Dental Visit and Meeting New Patients

    If the facility should like for us to send notification about the new partnership and initial assessment to the family, we will need to work with the Administrator and SSD regarding verbiage and letter approval. Optimally, I like to get initial assessment notices out two weeks in advance to give the families the opportunity to decline should they wish. Our goal is begin the initial assessments as soon as possible once the notices have been mailed and received by the families.

    Routine Follow Up Visits Are Scheduled

    Once the initial assessments have been completed in its entirety, which may take more than one day, we will contact the family regarding the results and the dental services we provide. It is at this point we can begin working on enrollment and placing the facility on our monthly schedule. Our goal is to take as much burden off of the facilities staff by scheduling and submitting our own applications to medicaid, etc.

    FAQs

    We are ecstatic for your interest and would love to discuss oral heath solutions for your facility! Please reach out to one of our dedicated staff members by phone or email.

    What should a new facility expect once contracted?

    We offer new facilities a free screening to all of their residents so that we can assess their dental needs. Once completed, OraQuest can compose a plan as to how we can meet those needs. The visual screening is free of charge to the facility and patient. We believe this is the best approach to show and explain what we have to offer and for us to understand the concerns and needs. OraQuest will provide a copy of the screening results to the social worker for each patients records. OraQuest will contact the families with the screening recommendations and give them the opportunity to learn more about our program or to pursue enrollment for their resident.

    *The oral screening should satisfy any annual assessment obligations mandated per the state. We offer free annual screenings to all residents each year or for individual residents as needed.*

    What does a patient dental screening involve?

    During the screening our dental team will visually evaluate each patient for their overall dental health and hygiene. We make note of any concerns as requested by the patient/ responsible party or as seen by the Dentist. This will include notations of any present or preexisting teeth conditions or potential risks to the future oral health such as decay, gum disease, etc. The screening is only visual and is in no way a diagnosis. A comprehensive evaluation and x-rays are provided once a resident is enrolled and considered a patient of record, only then can any treatment plan be created or diagnosis obtained.

    What type of communities do you serve?

    OraQuest Dental provides on-site dental services to residents in nursing homes, assisted living and memory care facilities throughout the state of Texas.

    How often do you visit a facility?

    We go to most of Our facilities 1-2 times a month. Once a month with the Hygienist (ongoing) and for facilities with active treatment, the Dentist will visit until treatment is completed. Once completed frequency of Dentist appointments will vary. If you or your loved one need to be seen between our regularly scheduled visits, please call to let us know and we will do our best to make arrangements. We schedule visits and notify the home at least one week in advance.

    If I just want a cleaning; do I need an exam?

    For a patient to receive a cleaning, he or she must have had a complete exam with our dentist within the last six months. If you are not an established patient or have never seen one of our dentists, then an exam is required prior to a cleaning. X-rays can be declined however we will require a signed refusal waiver provided by OraQuest.

    How do you provide services; do you have a portable office or do you set up inside?

    We use portable dental equipment (x-ray system, compressor, hand pieces, cavitron, delivery unit etc.) Most patients receive treatment in a designated and sanitary space. However, we are specialized and trained to provide care to patients who are unable to be transferred from their bed or wheelchair.

    Do you accept Medicaid or Medicare?

    Qualifying Medicaid recipients can enroll into our program at no additional cost. As a standalone coverage, Medicare does not cover dental care expenses. We offer alternative financial options for those residents who do not have traditional LTC Medicaid.

    Does Medicaid cover dental services?

    Medicaid recipients could potentially have benefits to cover dental services. If your patient lives in a nursing home we encourage you to contact OraQuest Dental directly and speak with our dedicated staff who can better explain the process and financial responsibility.

    What if a resident has dental insurance?

    OraQuest dental is considered an out-of-network provider and we do not submit claims on your behalf. Services provided under this scenario are considered “fee for service” and payment in full will be required once treatment is completed. Should their insurance carrier provide coverage to out-of-network providers, they may submit an ADA dental insurance form requesting reimbursement. We can assist you with the procedures, codes and prices for your convenience.
