Champions in the Community

As a nonprofit, Delta Dental of Colorado is different than most insurance companies. We balance our bottom line with a commitment to our community. Our community benefit team aligns our mission of improving the oral health of the communities we serve with different organizations and at various events throughout the state. And we encourage our employees themselves to volunteer at these events to make a difference in people's lives. In 2014, Delta Dental of Colorado's community benefit team sponsored 35 events across the state of Colorado, and 48 employees volunteered their time to help make it all happen. You can view images from some of these events on Delta Dental of Colorado's Facebook page.

This past year, we added a fun new outreach and educational component to our community benefit presence: a live performance for children in first through third grades. We had 58 Land of Smiles performances in the first year, and we won a Colorado Healthcare Communicators Silver Award in the Ongoing Community Relations category.
