Credentis and DentaQuest Partner to Bring Innovative Cavity Prevention Products to US Markets

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–credentis, a leader in state-of-the-art oral biology research and
development, and DentaQuest, the nation’s leading purpose-driven oral
health care organization, have entered into a strategic partnership to
test and promote Curodont™ Repair Fluoride Plus and other Curolox®
products in the North American Market, enabling better pre-cavity
treatment and prevention for US consumers. Through this collaboration,
DentaQuest will be the only US dental benefits company introducing these
innovative products through DentaQuest’s national caries management
partners and through its own preventive oral health centers.


As part of its Preventistry® platform, DentaQuest Impact Inc. invests in
innovative companies, technologies and products that have the potential
to revolutionize oral health for everyone by redefining prevention and
care. “In addition to giving Americans access to therapies that can
promote the healing of teeth and reverse the progression of tooth decay
before cavities form, we are excited to work with credentis to assess
the preventive benefits of their existing products and help develop new
ones that could help millions more live cavity free,” said Kirill
Zaydenman, Vice President of Innovation for DentaQuest. “We believe
credentis’ unique preventive technology has the potential to not only
improve consumer health and enhance patient experience, but also lower
the cost of care.”

The partnership with DentaQuest provides an exceptional opportunity to
demonstrate the benefit of credentis’ Curolox products – in particular
the Guided Enamel Remineralization Therapy with Curodont Repair Fluoride
Plus – and establish them in US dental practice,” said Dominik Lysek,
CEO and founder of credentis ag.

This is the first investment of its kind for DentaQuest. According to
Alison Corcoran, President of DentaQuest Impact Inc., “We have a long
history of investing in oral health programs and research through the
DentaQuest Partnership for Oral Health Advancement, and our support has
helped drive positive change across the country for more than a decade,
but this is different. To truly transform oral health, we need to also
be partnering with – and investing in – many types of organizations, and
we are thrilled to welcome credentis to the Preventistry® revolution.”
