Preventive Benefits

Did you know that a healthy mouth can also lead to a healthier body? Research suggests that as many as 120 diseases can show early signs or symptoms in the mouth, and that good oral health and regular dental checkups can improve whole body health. Delta Dental of Virginia provides a variety of benefit options that reward you for being proactive and engaging in preventive oral health care.

If you are unsure of whether any of the following benefits are provided under your plan, log in to view your benefits or check with your HR/Benefits representative.

 

Healthy Smile, Healthy You

 

Delta Dental of Virginia’s Healthy Smile, Healthy You® program provides additional benefits for four important health conditions connected to oral health: pregnancy, diabetes, certain high risk cardiac conditions, and cancer treatment. Once enrolled, you will be eligible for one additional cleaning and exam (or periodontal maintenance procedure if you have a history of definitive periodontal treatment, such as surgery) beyond the ordinary limit per benefit period (or, if pregnant, during the term of your pregnancy).

Our Healthy Smile, Healthy You benefit is available for subscribers with Delta Dental PPO and Delta Dental Premier coverage who are employed by groups that offer the program. For information specific to your dental plan, please log in and review your Member Handbook/Evidence of Coverage.

Prevention First

 

Prevention First stretches your annual maximum benefit allowance by excluding costs for preventive care and diagnostic services, such as X-rays, exams and cleanings, from your allowance, making more of your annual maximum available for other dental services throughout your plan year.

Prevention First is not offered on all plans. For information specific to your dental plan, please log in and review your EOC.

MaxOver

 

MaxOver® rewards you for visiting your dentist for preventive exams and cleanings by allowing you to carry forward a portion of your unused annual maximum benefit allowance for future use. So, when you need a procedure that costs more than your plan’s annual maximum benefit, the funds in your MaxOver account can help meet the difference.

MaxOver is not offered on all plans. For information specific to your dental plan, please log in and review your EOC.
