In February of last year, Texas Health and Human Services Dental Director Marguerite Laccabue held a dental stakeholders meeting in Austin. It doesn’t appear from the HHSC online video of the proceedings that it was well-attended or promoted as the audience in attendance was some 40 or 50 individuals.
Dentaquest and MCNA representatives addressed issues
A major part of the meeting was the presentations done by Dr. Carlos Garcia, the dental director for MCNA, and Brenda Walker, provider relations for Dentaquest, on common issues that providers run into with their respective companies.
So as a public service to dental providers, we have created our own videos of their presentations (15 minutes for Ms. Walker and 19 minutes for Dr. Garcia) to make them broadly available and easily accessible on YouTube and the TDMR website. We also provide download links for the slides they used in their presentations so providers can refer to them.
We hope providers find them useful.
