Dental makes a difference
Did you know that more than 90% of systemic diseases, such as diabetes and high blood pressure, could include oral symptoms?1 Proper oral care plays a big role in overall health and wellness. As part of our coverage, we’ll even remind your employees with certain health conditions to get regular dental checkups.
Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina (Blue Cross NC) takes an integrated approach to our medical and group dental insurance that takes care of your total health, lowers costs and more.
