Delta Dental of Illinois offers its members free access to an online risk assessment tool – the LifeSmile Score Oral Health Assessment by PreViser. We also work with clients to provide this assessment for their employees and members with a unique website that goes to the same assessment but with a link to a backend database that de-identifies information so clients can assess the health of their group. This easy-to-use tool only takes a few minutes to complete and can help your patients achieve better oral health by assessing their risk for tooth decay, gum disease and oral cancer. The assessment provides an overall oral health score along with a report they can print or email to their dentist prior to their dental visit.
As a dentist, you know better than anyone that prevention is critical to achieving good oral health – and education is a vital part of prevention. That’s why Delta Dental of Illinois encourages our members to get smart about their oral health.
Having our members take the assessment is only one part. Using the LifeSmile Oral Health Assessment and PreViser software can be a benefit for your practice as well.
Here’s why you should participate.
- PreViser’s free analytic software gives you an easy to use, objective way to measure, understand and communicate your patients’ risk and disease level as a simple numeric score.
- PreViser makes it easy to track changes in risk level and disease severity over time to evaluate treatment effectiveness and outcomes.
- Dentists using PreViser report that because patients better understand their oral health needs, they are more compliant and, as a consequence, are healthier.
- Patients with certain medical conditions or oral health issues may even qualify for additional preventive care through our Enhanced Benefits Program.
