Dear Dr. Nicoll

I'd like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for meeting with us and the Association des chirurgiens dentistes du Québec (ACDQ) on June 22nd. I found our discussion to be very helpful and productive and look forward to many more discussions with you and your colleagues going forward.

Private insurers and dentists have worked with each other, their service providers and other participants in the benefit claims processing industry for a number of years to facilitate and promote the electronic submission of dental benefit claims and to promote oral health outcomes that benefit the patient. This successful business relationship has provided significant advantages to patients, to dentists and insurers. We believe it is important that all parties collaborate to move forward on a national basis in ways that protect and enhance this process and sustain and grow its many advantages.
