Welcome to Preventistry®!
Advantage Dental is revolutionizing oral health for everyone by redefining prevention and care. A more effective health care system requires a revolution in oral health care and Advantage Dental and affiliated practices are leading the way. Advantage Dental affiliated practices include Community Dental of Kentucky and Community Dental Care of Texas.
A revolution requires us to reach beyond the dental chair to reshape the oral health system.

Making an Impact
We are making an impact in the communities we serve by increasing access to dental care services and awareness of the importance of oral health in areas where people might not otherwise have access. To do this, we operate programs such as teledentistry, the MORE Program, and community outreach services.
Through our Community Outreach programs alone, providers and employees spent over 34,000 hours in 56 counties, providing care outside of the dental practice setting. We provided preventive screenings to approximately 29,000 students from 441 different schools, totaling nearly 1.5 million dollars in donated care during 2019.
We are dedicated to our mission and we are driving positive, lasting change in the communities that need it most.
