Grin! for Kids: value-added resource for dental plans

Educating families about dental care in creative ways gives them incentives to take advantage of Delta Dental plan benefits. The way to engage children in dental care is to give them opportunities to learn about taking care of the teeth, gums and mouth so that their smiles are healthy.

Grin! for Kids is a coloring and activity book with fun, educational projects for children in grades K-5. It is a valuable free resource that adds value to a Delta Dental plan. The book can be printed out at home for easy access, as parents show children about preventive care and explain how important it is.

Each issue of Grin! for Kids, available in English and Spanish, contains new ideas and information that your employees’ families can share as they maintain regular visits to their dentist under their plan.

Have you had a service meeting lately?

A checkup you won’t mind … you might even enjoy

Just like we encourage enrollees to visit the dentist regularly to keep their smiles healthy, we want to help your bottom line stay healthy too! That’s why we suggest our mid- and large-sized groups meet with us every year — virtually or face-to-face — to evaluate plan performance, review reports and address any questions.

You might be wondering, “Why do I need a meeting when I can review the reports myself?” Or maybe you’re thinking, “My plan is running smoothly, there’s no reason to meet.” Well, here are a few reasons why service meetings are so great (besides getting to chat with your awesome Delta Dental team of course).

You can be proactive.
When evaluating your plan performance, you don’t want to wait for a big issue to arise before intervening. We can help point out the red flags when we review your reports together. For example, we might notice a decrease in utilization for D & P services. We can not only highlight this, but we can also offer solutions, so you can help prevent a spike in major services from happening down the road.

You get tailored support.
No two annual service meetings are the same. Based on your group’s unique needs, we can also provide materials to help you educate enrollees. If your enrollees are struggling to stay in-network for instance, we offer a suite of materials to help them find an in-network dentist. Or if we notice you’ve had a lot of questions about claims recently, we might take time this to review claims examples with you.

It’s a timesaver.
Don’t like meetings? Here’s the good part – we’ve already put in the time carefully reviewing your plan performance before we meet, so we’ll only highlight the information you really need to know. When we chat, we can focus on your successes and offer solutions to improve utilization.

Whether you’ve been with us for years, or just a year, we encourage you to talk with your account manager. And remember, you can reach out to us any time (not just for a service meeting)!
