Lake Success, NY—February 25, 2020—ProHEALTH Dental is expanding its medical/dental integration model through a Clinical Affiliation Agreement with CareMount Medical, P.C., the largest independent multi-specialty medical group in New York State, providing comprehensive medical care to over 665,000 patients in more than 45 offices throughout Westchester, Putnam, Dutchess, Columbia, and Ulster counties and New York City.
Through this affiliation, CareMount Medical physicians and ProHEALTH Dental dentists will collaborate on coordinated care and patient education programs to improve the overall health and wellness of their patients. ProHEALTH Dental’s state-of-the-art dental offices will provide a full range of general and specialty services to patients of all ages, with dedicated amenities for children and adolescents.
The planned 2020 dental facilities under this affiliation will operate as “CareMount Dental” and will be located throughout CareMount’s practice area.
“We are honored to work with CareMount Medical through this clinical affiliation,” said Norton L. Travis, CEO of ProHEALTH Dental. “Our mission is to improve patients’ overall wellness through the coordination of dental services with large high-quality medical groups like CareMount. By offering state-of-the-art dentistry services to patients of all ages in collaboration with their treating physicians, our goal is to improve the well-being of our patients and reduce the cost of healthcare.”
“Understanding the importance of oral health as part of overall health, we are pleased to offer this unique medical/dental model to the communities we serve, to further our mission of promoting excellent health and wellness, and expanding access to care in the communities we serve,” said Scott D. Hayworth, MD, FACOG, President and CEO of CareMount Medical, P.C.
This will be ProHEALTH Dental’s fifth major clinical affiliation which collectively provides dental services access to over 3 million patients. As with the other clinical affiliations, CareMount and ProHEALTH Dental remain separate legal entities that are solely responsible for the care of their patients. Through this clinical affiliation model, ProHEALTH Dental currently operates eleven (11) offices, with another ten (10) under development.
“We believe that this is the model of the future,” said Travis. “It’s time to break down the historical barrier between medicine and dentistry and have these important healthcare professionals work together to improve the oral and overall health of their patients.”
