Promoting the Connection Between Oral Health and Overall Health

Delta Dental of Colorado understands the important connection between oral health and overall health. We also understand that not only is oral health critical to overall health, it's critical to the economic health of our state. Fifty-five percent of third-graders in Colorado have experienced cavities, yet dental disease is nearly 100 percent preventable. Dental care — much of it to treat dental disease — costs Coloradans approximately $1 billion annually.

A healthy body starts with a health mouth. We want all Coloradans to know that...especially our Delta Dental of Colorado members. To that end, we continue to add information to The Wellness Connection on our website ( We want to give all Coloradans the tools to learn about oral health, the importance of prevention, and tips for keeping their smile bright and their body healthy.
