Dental insurance continues to support optimal health as highlighted in the recently released 2022 State of America’s Oral Health and Wellness Report, a nationwide analysis of consumer opinions and behaviors relating to oral health. Findings from the Delta Dental-commissioned research of U.S. adults and parents of children ages 12 and younger also inform how adults who have dental insurance recognize the emotional and financial benefits that come with having dental coverage. A few highlights from this year’s report include:

Advantages of dental insurance extend beyond encouraging better oral health
  • Almost 9 in 10 (89%) adults agree that having dental coverage:
    • Gives them peace of mind.
    • Provides relief from worrying about what they would do in a dental emergency.
  • Among those insured, nearly all adults recognize that their dental insurance saves them money (94%) and is well worth the cost (91%).
