Oral health matters at your business!
Optimal oral health truly contributes to better overall health and wellness for employers--right down to their bottom line. Scientific studies have shown that people with better oral health are more likely to have a healthy heart and circulatory system and have lower risk for complications from diabetes and other chronic conditions.
Health through Oral Wellness® (HOW®) for employers
Northeast Delta Dental’s Health through Oral Wellness® is a comprehensive, patient-centered wellness program for employees and their family members that empowers them to achieve optimal oral health through risk assessment, education and access to evidence-based preventive care.
HOW® uses industry leading oral healthcare analytic reports to help you and your clients to understand the oral health profile of insured populations and how it may be affecting workforce wellness and productivity as well as medical costs for management of chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease. These easy-to-understand reports compare claims data with oral disease risk profiles created using our exclusive online Oral Health Risk Assessment to highlight areas for improvement in the utilization of scientifically validated prevention strategies.
HOW® employs state-of-the-art patient outreach and engagement tools to individualize electronic communications with members to empower them to get the evidence-based preventive care they need to stay healthy.
HOW® can provide evidence-based benefits to individuals at greater risk of oral diseases or medical complications related to oral health when they register for HOW and have a risk assessment completed by their dentist. Benefit enhancements for patients shown by standardized risk assessment to be at greater risk for oral disease include oral health counseling, tooth decay susceptibility testing, sealants for children and adults and greater frequency of cleanings, periodontal maintenance, and fluoride treatments.
