Giving back


Our purpose statement points us toward creating smiles, improving health and enhancing lives – and part of how we make that come to life is through the initiatives we use to contribute to our communities and increase dental health awareness.


We kicked off 2018 with the announcement that Delta Dental awarded the largest grant in our history to the UCLA School of Dentistry. The $1.5 million grant will support the launch of a community-based clinical education program, enabling fourth-year dental students, overseen by credentialed dental practitioners, to tread Medicaid recipients and individuals who struggle with access to care.

Other recent initiatives have included:

From volunteering at local food banks to participating in charity races, Delta Dental employees work both together and individually, as ambassadors of our mission, to live our purpose each day.
