DentaQuest Care Group and Sarrell Dental Form Affiliation

DQSDBOSTON (September 19, 2013) – Today, Massachusetts-based DentaQuest Care Group and Alabama-based Sarrell Dental announced they are forming an affiliation to advance their shared mission to improve oral health. The affiliation between the two non-profits was fully supported by both organizations’ Boards of Directors. Both organizations have been leaders in exploring innovative ways of addressing the oral health crisis in America.

“We are thrilled about this affiliation and partnership,” said Fay Donohue, CEO and President of DentaQuest. “As the newest affiliate in the DentaQuest family of affiliates, we are excited about working together to improve oral health. This signals an important moment for us to explore opportunities to advance cost-effective, quality-focused ways to improve access to care.”

Jeffrey Parker, the CEO of Sarrell Dental, said “This affiliation represents a validation of our model of care and demonstrates an alignment between our two organizations. Through this affiliation, DentaQuest and Sarrell Dental will seek to ensure more people have access to the dental care they need.” Moving forward, Parker will be the CEO of DentaQuest Healthcare Delivery.

Oral health is essential to general health and well-being, especially as it relates to children. Dental disease is the most common chronic illness in children, and it is almost entirely preventable. Among children, tooth decay is five times more prevalent than asthma.

“Together, our family of affiliates has a singular mission: to improve the oral health of all,” said Ralph Fuccillo, Chief Mission Officer, DentaQuest. “Today’s announcement is about two non-profits coming together to advance this mission.”
