Why Dental Care?

Because a healthier smile can be important to maintaining your overall health

Maintaining good oral health matters. You're more likely to visit the dentist when you have a dental program.1 And of course staying on top of your care is the key to preventing costly problems that can add up. Plus, going to the dentist regularly can help prevent problems that have been linked to heart disease.2

That's where a good dental program comes in. The right program makes it easier to visit the dentist and helps lower your costs. You get support to keep up with dental cleanings and other preventive care that helps you avoid costly problems and live healthier. Now that's something to smile about!

Keeping your teeth healthy, without a dental program, can be expensive. While costs will vary based on where you live, the average family of four spends $1,824 a year on dental services, not including the cost of braces.3
