ADVANCING ORAL & SYSTEMIC HEALTH
Direct Diagnostics is a clinical laboratory and biotechnology company that is advancing the field of molecular testing and transforming salivary diagnostics.
We are developing the next generation of saliva tests for infectious disease and pathogens found in the mouth and periodontia. These tests can be used by both Dental and Medical practitioners to create an accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment plan for each patient. Early detection, identification, and successful treatment of these specific pathogens will lead to improved oral and systemic health.
In addition to our clinical laboratory services, Direct Diagnostics provides on-going education and consultative services to create an effective model for practice on-boarding, discussing these tests with patients, improving case acceptance, and delivering effective treatment results.
