About Us

In the Community

     
  During COVID-19

Delta Dental of Massachusetts is working hard to ensure that our employees, providers, members, clients and community partners have access to the resources they need in this particularly challenging time.

One of our first steps was to provide support for immediate community needs, including donations to the City of Boston’s Resiliency Fund, and contributions to Worcester Community Foundation’s Together COVID-19 Fund and the Community of Western Massachusetts COVID-19 Fund for Pioneer Valley.

We’re also working with dentists in our network to understand the impact of dental practice closures on their businesses and how we can best support them during the pandemic so communities across Massachusetts don’t lose access to critical oral health care services once the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions have eased and offices reopen.

We are continuing to evaluate other steps that we can take over the coming weeks and months to improve the oral health of all.
