Managed Care Contract Evaluation
There is strength in our numbers. DPG uses a “messenger model” for managed care contracting that
disseminates rates to each dental practice, allowing each member to individually accept or reject the
contract. DPG then executes the contract as a group and the network must accept all credentialed
members. DPG reviews all contract language to ensure that dentists are protected from any adverse
actions. Networks delegate credentialing to DPG.
- DPG utilizes Strategic Healthcare Partners, LLC (SHP), led by John Crew and Mike
Scribner, CPA, who offer more than 20 years of experience in healthcare. SHP has a staff of 16
and offices located in Albany and Savannah.
We have a voice in Georgia. DPG has contracted with an experienced governmental relations firm that

profession. If there’s an issue that needs to be addressed with legislative action, our team knows all the
We help you stay on track. Our contracted legal team lends invaluable expertise to managed care
