Dentacoin is the first Blockchain concept designed for the Global Dental Industry. It aims at improving dental care worldwide and making it affordable through utilizing the Blockchain advantages.
✓ Shifting the Paradigm from Treatment to Prevention. By bringing patients and dentists into a community, numerous win-win effects could be realized. Through a “Hippocratic” dental insurance model patients will no longer pay for treatments, but for prevention. Lifelong, full-covered dental care will be provided to the patient with very low, monthly rates, paid in DCN.
✓ Generating Value through Crowd Power. Through the Blockchain-based tools to be developed (a trusted review platform, an aftercare mobile app, a market research platform) patients and dentists will be rewarded with Dentacoin for their willingness to contribute to the Foundation’s mission.
✓ Making Dental Care affordable. With the collected Dentacoins, patients could:
• pay for their treatments; • pay for their dental insurance; • buy oral care products.
As for the dentists, Dentacoin will allow them to: • have a stable basic income; • buy dental materials and equipment; • create a patient community; • reduce marketing costs.
✓ Jumping over the Dentistry Borders. Dentacoin also plans on developing a decentralized, highly secure database of all patient health records. Health Data will be highly protected, updatable and accessible exclusively by patients or by dentists, upon a given permission.
