United Concordia Dental – 2017 Dental Solutions Report - 6
As examples, United Concordia has added cone-beam CT scans to
our rider coverage, after reviewing the effectiveness of cone beam
technology. This method of obtaining a three-dimensional image for
an implant procedure helps ensure proper placement of the implant
into the jawbone, critical to the long-term success of the procedure.
We also have added coverage for silver diamine, an interim cavityarresting substance, to our standard offerings, based on the FDA's
recent approval of this procedure.
Setting Ourselves Apart
Unlike other dental carriers, United Concordia employs a handson approach to dental health through a team of oral wellness
consultants. These highly dedicated and knowledgeable individuals
use a variety of tools-educational sessions, webinars, behavior
change initiatives and more-to help members understand the role
dental plays in better overall well-being.
Partnering with an employer's current wellness program and medical
carrier, our oral wellness consultants provide dental health education to
team members about the impact oral health has on the body, including:
* Webinars, on-site lunch and learns, and monthly newsletters
* Oral health behavior-change initiatives
* Representation at employee health fairs
