Posted on Wednesday, March 30, 2022

His passion for access to oral health care aligns with the nonprofit’s mission to provide children in need with life-changing dental care

Brian Jones, vice president of commercial, individual and exchange for DentaQuest, recently joined TeamSmile’s Board of Directors, reinforcing both a personal and professional dedication to improving oral health for all.

TeamSmile [] is the nation’s premier advocacy group that partners oral health professionals with professional athletic organizations to provide life-changing dental care to underserved children across the country. Through their programs, children receive free oral health education, screening, and treatment and are taught to recognize that the mouth and body are linked to overall health.

Jones joins the board as its eleventh member, following his long-term involvement and support of TeamSmile through his work with DentaQuest’s corporate citizenship efforts. DentaQuest has been the exclusive national dental insurance partner of TeamSmile since 2017 and actively supports many local TeamSmile clinics across the country.

“Through community-based collaborations, we are embracing the responsibility and an opportunity to deliver a system of care that addresses the needs of children across the country. Imagine a world where all kids have access to quality oral health care in a fun, loving environment. That is why I am thrilled to join TeamSmile’s board,” Jones said. “We need to break down the barriers preventing people from accessing the care they need, starting in childhood. DentaQuest places incredible value on working with community partners, and TeamSmile shares in that belief, making this a great fit.”

DentaQuest is rooted in outcomes-based, cost-effective dental solutions to increase access to care for a variety of populations. Currently, Jones leads DentaQuest’s commercial business unit, comprising group business in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana and direct-to-consumer business in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Missouri, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. Prior to this role, he managed strategic business development activities for all DentaQuest market segments, including Medicaid, Medicare Advantage, marketplace, commercial and vision.

Prior to joining DentaQuest, Jones launched The RAIL Group, a strategic business development consulting firm where he leveraged his 15 years of corporate strategic planning, management, leadership development, and business development experience with small and large businesses, nonprofits, associations and educational institutions.
