July 2nd, 2015

WellOne, a level 3 Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance, has announced the addition of Khantil Shah, DMD, to its dental team of providers in Pascoag and Foster, RI.

Dr. Shah received his Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree from Boston University’s Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine and is currently pursuing a Master of Public Health Program online at the University of Texas Health Science Center.

“Dr. Shah joins a busy team of dentists at our facilities in Pascoag and Foster,” stated Peter Bancroft, president and CEO of WellOne. “His addition to these practices will support the growing need for dental care in children, adults and the elderly in these communities.”

WellOne accepts most dental insurances including RI Medical Assistance and offers a reduced fee program for low income patients who do not have insurance coverage.
