"Our members continue to cite dental benefits as one of their most pressing needs and areas of concern," said John Wider, vice president of Health Products and Services, AARP in a press release. "Expanding the program to deliver additional preventive services adds value for our members and supports a holistic strategy to promote overall health."
"There is increasing evidence that poor dental health is associated with several serious and chronic medical conditions, so the opportunity to provide more coverage for preventive dental care in the plan benefit design should boost the overall value of the AARP Dental Insurance program, which has proven effective and affordable for many members," said Lowell Daun, D.D.S., a senior vice president with Delta Dental.
New members will receive the added service when they sign up; existing members will get it when they renew the membership.
