Delta Dental takes a multifaceted approach to supporting communities; our Dental Wellness and Education Initiative and Fluoridation Initiatives play big roles. These initiatives drive us to expand access to oral health education and prevention across cultures and communities, and when combined with our grants and other outreach programs, they help us reach even more people in need.
Dental Wellness and Education Initiative
Instilling the importance of dental health at a young age is one of our top priorities. Through the Dental Wellness and Education Initiative, we offer fun, free presentations and resources to public schools across the country. A main feature of this program is Ratoncito Pérez, the Hispanic counterpart to the Tooth Fairy, who helps us connect with more bicultural, and/or bilingual children.Read about the Dental Wellness and Education Initiative
The majority of Americans have the benefit of fluoridated water, but many states still have limited public access. Because fluoride plays such an important role in the prevention of tooth decay, we’ve made it our mission to advocate for fluoride expansion.Learn more about our Fluoridation Initiatives
