Your smile is your first impression but did you know it’s also a reflection of your overall health?

An unhealthy mouth can increase your risk of serious health conditions. Don’t let finances hold you back from a happy, healthy smile.


Delta Dental of Kansas has partnered with United Way of the Plains to fund dental coverage for those who would otherwise not be able to afford it – keeping your smile bright without burdening your budget.

“Kansans with greater access to dental care reduce their risk of experiencing serious health conditions. Last year, Kansans who lack healthcare access received critical dental care through this program. Good oral health contributes to overall wellbeing, and we’re proud to be able to provide Kansans throughout the state with this important dental coverage.”

– Dean Newton, President and CEO of Delta Dental
