Oral Health Surveys

​Delta Dental of Illinois covers the smiles of 2 million individuals nationwide, and we know first-hand the importance of oral health and its connection to well-being for both adults and children. For this reason, we recently commissioned the Delta Dental of Illinois Children's Oral Health Survey and Adult's Oral Health and Well-Being Survey in 2018. Working with Kelton, a leading insights firm, we surveyed 150 parents of children ages 12 and under1 and 305 adults2 in Illinois.

We asked Illinoisans to share their opinions and oral health habits regarding their children or themselves. We explored serious and lighthearted topics and summarized the results in two easy-to-read reports to help educate and improve oral health in the state.
