Dental insurance for kids

Posted on August 21, 2020 in Dental benefit information

When it comes to our children, we always want the best for them and look out for their well-being. This includes their oral health and making sure they have a healthy smile.

Good oral health habits start early.  The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children visit the dentist by age 1 to help establish a relationship with the dentist and assess any risk for early dental decay. At 18 months, the regular six-month checkups can then begin. 

Throughout early childhood, the teenage years and into adulthood, a quality dental insurance plan can help maintain your children’s oral health, leading them to have healthier smiles, concentrate in school and grow strong.

Delta Dental of Illinois offers the Gold Plan, Silver Plan and Bronze Plan for families, presenting different options for every family so you can pick the one for your family’s needs and budget. Our Gold Plan (starting at $35.54 monthly) is the most popular and offers rich benefits and covers 100 percent of preventive services after deductible. The Silver Plan (starting at $28.94 monthly) is an affordable plan covering 90 percent of services after deductible, and the Bronze Plan (starting at $14.47 monthly) is the most affordable plan covering 100 percent of preventive services after deductible like cleanings and examples but does not cover basic or major services, like fillings, crowns or root canals.

All of Delta Dental of Illinois’ family plans focus on prevention and cover sealants and fluoride treatments for children at little to no cost to you.  Sealants are one of the best tools for helping your child prevent tooth decay, and they’re easily applied by a dentist with pain or discomfort.  Fluoride treatments can also help prevent tooth decay.
