Sealant Recommended By DentaQuest, formerly Doral

Many know, but some do not, that states usually contract with a company who then subcontract with dental providers to get the care to the medicaid patients.  Doral is described as a dental benefit administrator. 

At its LinkedIn webpage it is said: "Doral, is a subsidiary of DSM and DentaQuest, a dental benefit administrator operating in the government sector serving nearly 50 clients, 12 million members in 24 states and the District of Columbia, and approximately 17,000 participating dentists. The mission of DSM is to improve oral health."  (put another way, Doral or DentaQuest is a government contractor)

However in searching Doral, you are directed to,  (the gov part a bit misleading) where it says Doral and ADI have merged to become DentaQuest.

Here, guys, check it out:  DentaQuest recommends sealants.
