What is Dentacoin?
Founded in March 2017, Dentacoin Foundation develops the first Blockchain solution for the global dental industry. Driven by a vast community of progressive dentists, software developers and marketing specialists, the Foundation has managed to create a new dental ecosystem which favors all industry stakeholders: patients, dentists, manufacturers, suppliers, labs, insurance companies.
Dentacoin (DCN) currency, “the Bitcoin of Dentistry”

Dentacoin Assurance, Preaching & Practicing Preventive Dental Care
Dentacoin Assurance is the first Blockchain-based program that entitles Patients to preventative dental care for life against an affordable monthly premium in Dentacoin (DCN) cryptocurrency. Dentists receive regular monthly capitations, with the provision that all services will be provided to Patients at no charge or at greatly reduced fees.
The model brings the financial interests of Patients and Dentists into complete alignment while shifting the focus from acute treatment to sustainable prevention and establishing strong, lasting bonds. The testnet of Dentacoin Assurance is planned to be launched by the end of 2018.
Dental Health Database, Making Patients Owners of Their Dental Health Records
Another key project to be developed in 2019 by the Dentacoin Foundation is a decentralized dental health database which stores patient’s data in a safe and reliable way. It is fully managed by patients – only they decide what to store and who can access it. This peerless security degree and control over one’s own data is ensured by the Blockchain. For dentists, this means easier and more precise prophylaxis plans and highly individualized treatment based on a more holistic view of the patient’s health.
