Revolutionizing Dental Care with Smart Blockchain Solutions
Dentacoin Foundation was established in March 2017 and aims at improving dental care and making it affordable by promoting patient-centric and preventive healthcare and utilizing the blockchain technology advantages.
Through smart Blockchain-based software solutions and a common industry-specific currency, dentists and their patients are seamlessly and securely connected, and able to efficiently cooperate with each other and to generate personal and mutual benefits.
Dentacoin Foundation has developed the first three tools that have already attracted more than 60,000 individuals and 4000 dentists. These are as follows:
> DentaVox: A collective intelligence tool, which researches users’ opinions on dental health topics and thus gathers valuable market research data.
> Trusted Reviews: The first platform for detailed, trusted and rewarded dental treatment reviews which can only be written upon a unique invitation sent to verified patients.
> Dentacare: The mobile app which helps users to properly take care of their teeth through a 3-month program.
Dental Insurance-Like Model
The idea of Dentacoin is triggered by a community of young dentists who care about the long-term welfare of patients and are paid for keeping them healthy. The epitome of this principle is called Dentacoin Assurance – a revolutionary dental insurance-like program. It encourages paying for prevention and not for treatment. It is executed through a smart contract on the Blockchain, directly between patients and dentists. Through low monthly premium in Dentacoin, paid to its dentists, patients are assured to receive lifelong, prevention-oriented dental care. Also, Dentacoin Assurance is planned to be launched in beta version at the end of 2018.
Supporting Dental Industry Globally
In the short span of operating, Dentacoin Foundation has managed to successfully collect funds for its development through a Presale in July 2017 and an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) in October 2017. And it also gathered a community of around 100,000 people globally supporting the project and its development.
The Company has developed its first three tools to over 60,000 Users onboard + 4000 dentists. It was implemented as a means of payment at thirty-eight 38 clinics in 14 countries around the world including USA, Australia, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Italy, Hungary, Bulgaria, Serbia, UAE, Malaysia, Fiji, Taiwan, India, and Pakistan.
Establishing Strategic Partnerships
Dentacoin Foundation has strategic partnerships with Arklign, which is an end-to-end digital lab partner based in San Jose, California. Another partner is Ecodent which is a dental laboratory located in Brooklyn, New York. PCP Dental Recruitment is also one of the partners of Dentacoin situated in London, United Kingdom. There are other partners who are significantly working with Dentacoin Foundation such as, Bredent Dental Implant Manufacturer from Germany, Dentamed, International Supplier, and Floss Bar from New York and Mobident, a mobile dental care provider mainly knows as Caddy Clinic.
The Dentacoin token (DCN) was listed on international exchange platforms, including Changelly, HitBTC, Cryptopia, Coinexchange, Mercatox, IDEX, CoinFalcon, BuyUcoin, UPcoin, Godex, and SimpleSwap.
Expanding Global Dental Market
By using the Dentacoin tools, patients become an active part in this Healthcare reinvention process. Dentists are also strongly supported in the process of building a successful patient-driven dental practice, regardless of size, competence, location, and budget.
The tools functioning within the Dentacoin Ecosystem help them establish and maintain strong bonds with patients and receive regular income for practicing prevention-oriented, patient-centered care.
Providing Decentralized Storage of Patient Records
Blockchain-based technological solutions are highly relevant to the healthcare services market. Therefore, there are general Healthcare-Centric Blockchain solutions, mainly focused on providing decentralized storage of patient records.
Dentacoin Foundation also plans on developing a Blockchain-based database for dental health records to help dentists provide even more accurate diagnostics and treatment while bring the ownership of health data back to patients’ hands.
Forecasting Long-Term Goals
The company is improving its existing tools and developing the next ones such as Dentacoin Assurance and Dental Health Database. It is expanding its partner network on the way to mass real-world adoption and aims to offer more and better options for Buying/ Selling/ Storing Dentacoin.
Dentacoin’s project is successfully measured by its adoption, by its growing network of users such as Dentists, Patients, Suppliers, Dental Laboratories, and Service Agencies. Within this newly-created network, each new participant increases the value of the network for all existing participants.
While stating his views about the company’s future, Jeremias says, “The progress achieved so far makes us highly optimistic about the future.”
