August 15, 2019 – ProHEALTH Dental is expanding its medical/dental integration model through a Clinical Affiliation Agreement with Westmed Medical Group, the premiere medical practice in Westchester County. Westmed has over 500 physicians and advanced care providers addressing the medical needs of more than 350,000 patients across thirteen (13) convenient locations throughout Westchester County, NY and Fairfield County, CT.
The first dental facility under this affiliation, which will operate as “WestDental”, will be located in Yonkers at the Ridge Hill shopping center—where Westmed already has an established multispecialty practice, caring for more than 1,000 patients a day. This new state-of-the-art operatory dental office will provide a full range of general and specialty services to patients of all ages, with dedicated amenities for children and adolescents.
“We are extremely proud that Westmed has selected us as their oral health affiliate – their commitment to providing high-quality medical care aligns with our mission to help patients understand the importance of good oral health as an important element of their overall health and well-being,” said Norton L. Travis, CEO of ProHEALTH Dental.
“Recognizing the significance of oral health as an important part of overall health, we are excited to announce this clinical affiliation with ProHEALTH Dental, and further our mission of partnering with our patients in their comprehensive care,” said Anthony Viceroy, Westmed’s CEO.
This will be ProHEALTH Dental’s fourth major clinical affiliation which collectively provide dental services access to over 2 million patients. As with the other clinical affiliations, Westmed and ProHEALTH Dental remain separate legal entities that are solely responsible for the care of their patients. Through this unique clinical affiliation model, ProHEALTH Dental currently operates nine (9) offices, with another ten (10) under development. We believe that this is the model of the future,” said Travis. “It’s time to break down the historical barrier between medicine and dentistry and have these important healthcare professionals work together to improve the oral and overall health of their patients.”
