Dobson | DaVanzo Releases Study Comparing Pediatric Dental Practices Across Medicaid Providers and States

Published Tuesday, April 5, 2016

The Benevis Foundation released a report prepared by Dobson | DaVanzo that compares the dental utilization and monthly Medicaid expenditures for patients who received care by a Kool Smiles provider – a national children’s dental provider – to non-Kool Smiles providers. Using government-provided data for seven states, the report compares the utilization and Medicaid expenditure trends for diagnosis, restorative, and extractions services for both types of providers who operate within the same geographic area. The study found that within and across states over time, Kool Smiles is a low-cost and conservative provider of dental service for Medicaid patients.
