Dental benefits 2020: A bridge to oral health and wellness

Original air date: 12 - 1 p.m. ET Thursday, April 9, 2020

Good oral health begins with good dental hygiene and regular preventive care.  Yet, many U.S. adults do not receive annual exams and cleanings, even among those who have dental benefits through work. Most adults have limited understanding about the connection between oral health and overall wellness, and few follow American Dental Association guidelines for appropriate dental hygiene.

This complimentary webinar reviews the results of Guardian's latest research on consumer trends in oral health and dental care utilization. Specifically, we address:

  • The linkage between oral health issues such as periodontitis and various medical conditions, including diabetes and heart disease
  • COVID-19 (coronavirus) implications for dental benefits and oral health care, including teledentistry
  • Vaping usage, and its potential effects on oral health and wellness
