Prevention Focused

The results are in!

The Preventistry‚Ą† approach from Delta Dental of Massachusetts is improving the oral health of our members.


As part of our Preventistry approach to better oral health, we introduced the Preventistry Patient Report in 2010. This report helps dentists in the Delta Dental PPO Network in Massachusetts identify higher-risk members in their practices to ensure those members get the preventive care they need. The goals of the report are to help increase the percentage of higher-risk children (ages 6-18) who receive topical fluoride treatments to prevent tooth decay and the percentage of higher-risk adults who get regular periodontal cleanings to manage gum disease.
