Quip, known for its subscription electric toothbrush and oral care accessories, is now introducing a new venture called Quipcare to challenge the dental insurance industry. The free app lets patients book pay-as-you-go dental services such as teeth cleanings, regular check-ups, fillings and X-rays, specifically offering an alternative for those without dental insurance or those who may have exceeded the limit of their coverage.
As well as increasing accessibility to a wide range of dental care services, Quipcare prioritizes transparency by sharing quotes for services—and Quip claims the costs of its services are roughly 30 to 40% lower than average rates in the New York City area. Currently, Quipcare is only available in this city but Quip aims to expand its coverage by 2020.
