Western University of Health Sciences’ College of Dental Medicine (CDM) received a $25,000 donation from DentaQuest to support third and fourth-year students completing externships focused on care for vulnerable populations.
One of the nation’s largest and most experienced Medicaid dental benefits administrators, DentaQuest focuses on improving oral health outcomes for more than 33 million Americans with a nationwide network of providers in all 50 states. This investment in the Western University of Health Sciences’ dental school aligns directly with DentaQuest’s mission to improve the oral health of all.
“We are incredibly appreciative of the DentaQuest assistance for our students,” said WesternU College of Dental Medicine Dean Steven Friedrichsen, DDS. “It increases our program’s impact by supporting the students as they provide oral health care while learning first-hand about the challenges and opportunities surrounding equitable access to critically important health care services.”
