This partnership between vVARDIS and CareQuest aims to help bolster oral health care in the Medicaid population
vVARDIS has announced a partnership with CareQuest Innovation Partners. This partnership is said to expand access of vVARDIS’s technologies to the Medicaid population, according to a press release from both companies.
vVARDIS and CareQuest Innovation Partners will team up in order to develop low-cost treatments for state Medicaid programs. They will begin this partnership by researching professional quality treatment in dental practices affiliated with CareQuest Institute for Oral Health. On top of this study, there will also be the formation of a variety of educational and philanthropic programs for both patients and dental professionals. Founder of vVARDIS Haleh and Golnar Abivardi said this partnership came from a desire to providing higher quality oral care to those in need.
“The soul of vVARDIS is service and ensuring the world has access to the highest quality oral care. Good oral health is critical to overall health and wellbeing and far too many low-income families and children lack access to quality oral care, much less the cutting-edge technology to keep their mouths and bodies healthy,” they said in the press release. “We are proud to partner with CareQuest Innovation Partners to help improve oral health care and outcomes for the Medicaid population, which currently includes more than 37 million children.”
This partnership will use the same core technology used in vVARDIS Professional Curodont Repair Fluoride Plus treatment, which will be brought to patients in the Untied States. It is a mouth rinse that, when applied, is designed to be an anti-cavity treatment for initial tooth decay or white spots lesions. Fluoride and calcium in saliva will then penetrate the enamel and boost the mineralization process. This type of therapy is called Guided Enamel Remineralization.
In the future, vVARDIS and CareQuest Institute will be looking for more partners to care for underserved populations in the United States through preventative oral health care.
