BlueCare Dental Connection, a program for members with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas dental coverage, provides resources that promote oral health management, which may help improve overall health.
Research shows a potential link between periodontal disease and other health problems such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes control, and premature birth. More than ever it's critical to:
- Apply the knowledge gained from evidence-based dental research
- Create consumer-driven tools specific to dental care and dental benefits
Use condition management concepts to target members most in need of dental care
BlueCare Dental Connection includes member access to the online Dental Wellness CenterSM* , which has resources and support tools for members that allow them to:
- Ask licensed dentists dental-related questions through Ask A Dentist
- Locate a network general dentist or specialist with Provider Finder®
- Determine approximate dental fees in the marketplace with the Dental Cost AdvisorSM
