Wellness Wisdom -- This Is What We're All About
At Delta Dental of Illinois, our passion is good oral health. Together with your dentist, we can help provide the tools and insights that lead to good habits and excellent oral health.
Smart Mouthing Off of the Month
Going to the dentist at least once a year contributes to feeling better about your life overall, according to Delta Dental’s Oral Health and Well-Being Survey1 results.
In fact, Americans who go to the dentist at least once a year are 22 percent more likely to report their overall well-being – their physical and emotional health – as good or better compared with those who seldom visit the dentist.

Since great oral health starts with good information, we’ve organized all of our expert resources on our Wellness Wisdom page. Here, you’ll find a full library of oral health resources, including videos, risk assessment tools and a variety of education sources.
Delta Dental of Illinois is pleased to offer access to myDentalScore - an online risk assessment tool that will give you an easy to understand oral health score report.
