Delta Dental poll finds Americans with dental insurance have better oral health habits, healthier lifestyles, and financial benefits.
As communities continue to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic, maintaining good overall health is of the utmost importance, which is why Delta Dental of Arizona is shining a spotlight on oral health’s connection to overall health. A new DeltaDental poll highlights the overall health and financial benefits that dental insurance provides and reminds Americans that Delta Dental is the perfect partner in achieving optimal oral and overall health.
“According to a new poll, an overwhelming majority of Americans have experienced the positive effect dental insurance can have on oral and overall health. In fact, 86% of people surveyed said that dental insurance allows them to lead a healthy lifestyle. The same percentage of people noted that having dental insurance encouraged them to have better oral health habits too,” said Tiffany Di Giacinto, director of marketing and communications for Delta Dental of Arizona. “We encourage Arizonans to remain focused on their health and find a dental insurance plan that meets their needs, helps them save money, and enables them to receive care from dedicated dentists across the country.”
In addition, the Delta Dental poll found that many Americans also recognize the financial benefits that dental insurance provides. A substantial majority know that having dental insurance:
• Saves them money in the long run (80%);
• Is worth the cost (75%);
• and provides discounts pre-negotiated with their dentist (71%)
