Preventive Benefits

Did you know that a healthy mouth can also lead to a healthier body? Research suggests that over 100 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 your patients for being proactive and engaging in preventive oral health care. The availability of these options depends on whether they are provided under the patient’s dental plan. Patients can log on to our subscriber page or check with their HR/Benefits Representative to find out what is covered under their plan.

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, patients will be eligible for one additional cleaning and exam (or periodontal maintenance procedure if they have a history of definitive periodontal treatment, such as surgery) beyond the ordinary limit per benefit period (or, if pregnant, during the term of their 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, patients can log in using their subscriber account and review their EOC.

Prevention First

Prevention First stretches your patients’ annual maximum benefit allowance by excluding costs for preventive care and diagnostic services, such as X-rays, exams and cleanings, from their allowance, making more of their annual maximum available for other dental services throughout the plan year. Prevention First is not offered on all plans. To find out if Prevention First is covered under their plan, patients can log onto our secure subscriber page and review their EOC.

MaxOver

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

MaxOver is not offered on all plans. To find out if MaxOver is covered under their plan, patients can log onto our secure subscriber page and review their EOC.
