Given the significant impact that oral health can have on overall health, the Bridge2Health program helps make vital connections between the dental and health plan data of every employee. We use this data to help identify and empower your  employees with support and resources that can help them make informed decisions and take control of their health.

As an employer, this approach can make a big difference in helping you reduce absenteeism, improve productivity and control costs.

Data makes a big difference.

We’re able to integrate data for a better picture of employee health.

Dental health has been linked to heart disease, diabetes, asthma, pregnancy health, kidney disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and many other conditions.Step 1: We look across your employees' dental and medical claims to identify those with chronic conditions that can be impacted by improved oral health.

Step 2: We then identify those who are not taking the right steps to care for their mouth and reach out to them, reminding them to see a dentist for important services.

Step 3: We assign an activation score to each plan member, which we share with you so you can see the health of your total population.

How we know it works.

  • 42% of members with chronic conditions reengaged with their dentist.2
  • $1,500  reduction in medical claims per member per year.3
