Clinical Practice Guidelines

CareOregon Dental is dedicated to supporting our providers with evidence-based clinical guidelines to help achieve the best health outcomes for our members. The CareOregon Dental Quality Subcommittee (DQS) regularly meets to ensure quality standards of care are being met by our providers and to review clinical guidelines for dissemination.

Evidence Based Guidelines and Best Practices

The CareOregon DQS adopts guidelines that are evidence based. Once adopted, these are placed on the website. Paper copies are also available upon request. For more information on the guideline selection and adopting process, the Clinical Guidelines Policy & Procedure is available upon request.
