2020 Smile Report

We are pleased to share with you the 2020 Delta Dental of Virginia Smile Report! We all know what a challenging year this has been, and we are proud of the work being done across the Commonwealth to create healthy smiles. We were fortunate to be able to respond to the Covid-19 crisis with additional funding for non-profit organizations and oral health providers.
