What is Dental Blue Select?

Dental Blue® Select℠ is a voluntary, or employee-paid, dental plan. It provides affordable dental insurance that can help employees take care of their teeth—and their health—before serious problems set in.

Employers can choose to offer one of three cost-effective plans that range from covering the basics to robust and comprehensive coverage.

Who should consider it?

Dental health and gum disease are linked to everything from stroke and heart disease to diabetes and pre-term or low birth-weight babies.1 And nearly 75% of American adults have some form of periodontal disease. Making good dental coverage available for all employees can help reduce the number of work days lost to preventable dental issues.
