As we witness the sustained and widespread demonstrations in support of racial justice, we at Northeast Delta Dental share the universal support for greater justice and equality.

We also recognize that the problems of inequality extend from policing to housing to education and oral health. According to the Pew Charitable Trust, communities of color have much higher rates of tooth decay and tooth loss and fewer dental visits and preventive treatments than white populations. These dental health disparities indicate that the nation’s dental care delivery system is failing to adequately support the oral health of all Americans.

Northeast Delta Dental’s ongoing support of businesses and nonprofits negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic is primarily focused on advancing the oral health and overall wellness of its customers and the public. President & CEO, Tom Raffio, said, “We’re committed to thoughtfully and methodically providing forms of relief to our stakeholders and our communities that would be most beneficial to them, with their safety and health uppermost in our considerations. None of the related costs were passed along to them.”

Our Vision

Our Mission
