Education

Having access to the dental care you and your family need to keep a healthy regimen is more important than you might think. In fact, more and more studies are finding links between your oral health and your overall health. That’s why we believe it’s important for a dental plan provider to go beyond offering the typical services by providing access to educational tools and resources that help you and your dentist make better choices about your dental benefits.

Through the Oral Health Library1, you have access to valuable tools and resources including:

  • Risk Assessment Guides for you and your child
  • Information about specific oral health diseases
  • FAQs about dental procedures
