Delta Dental in the Community

We’re different than most insurance companies. We're a nonprofit. Instead of worrying about our bottom line, we focus on doing good within our community. It’s what sets us apart from other carriers. It’s also one of the keys to our success.

Land of Smiles
Delta Dental of Colorado offers a free, exciting live theater program on dental health for kindergarten through third-grade students

The program, piloted in Metro Denver in 2014, uses professional actors, a fun set and educational materials for teachers. The play and materials are offered free as a community service from Delta Dental of Colorado.

CU Heroes Clinic
Delta Dental of Colorado is proud to help support the smiles of our veterans. The new CU Heroes Clinic, which opened in August 2015, provides free dental care to veterans of U.S. military service, who are also enrolled in a CU Denver or Anschutz Medical Campus degree program.

Past Programs

Delta Dental of Colorado Fund
In 2011, the Delta Dental of Colorado Board of Trustees approved formation of the Delta Dental of Colorado Fund to provide two years of free dental insurance to income-qualified individuals across Colorado. One example of how the Fund has helped people in our community is highlighted by Dr. Shawn Maloy’s story.

However, after enrolling more than 6,000 low-income Coloradans, we have reached capacity and are no longer accepting applications from those without insurance. Learn more about our current programs to help Delta Dental of Colorado members with copay assistance.
