Why Delta Dental of Illinois

Dental benefits are about much more than a pretty smile.

With Delta Dental of Illinois individual and family dental benefit and dental savings programs, you can help protect your oral health and your wallet. Our individual dental coverage gives Illinois consumers a choice of dental plans that meet their needs at affordable rates.

Studies have linked gum disease to systemic conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, and indicate that some form of gum disease affects 75 percent of the U.S. population. Preventive dental care, such as regular cleanings, is the most effective way to protect oral health.

Delta Dental of Illinois - individual dental plan designs focus on preventive care and offer Illinoisans a dental benefit program at a cost you can afford. And because oral health care is so important to overall health, our individual dental coverage includes Delta Dental of Illinois Enhanced Benefits Program*, which offers enhanced coverage for individuals who have specific health conditions that can be positively affected by additional oral health care – like pregnancy, diabetes, high-risk cardiac conditions and suppressed immune systems.

Serious oral health problems can be expensive and time-consuming to treat. The fact is people with dental insurance are more likely to get the preventive care they need and avoid costly and serious oral health problems. If you are thinking of getting dental insurance, consider a Delta Dental of Illinois individual and family dental benefit program.

* The Enhanced Benefits Program is included with the Gold and Silver Plans. The Bronze Plan offers additional general cleanings and fluoride for at-risk individuals.
