Dental Xtra Helps Your Clients' Dental and Medical Health

Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield is focused on keeping your clients healthy. We’re in a better position to do that when their medical and dental coverage work together. Combining health and dental data allows us to identify members with health risks — whether medical or dental — and make sure they’re making the most of their benefits.

Good dental health can influence high-cost medical conditions such as diabetes, oral cancer, coronary artery disease (CAD), low-birth-weight and premature babies.

Our Dental Xtra program is included in all group plans and offers outreach, education and enhanced benefits for members with these targeted medical conditions. By integrating medical and dental, your clients can improve your employees’ overall health by focusing on dental health. Arkansas Blue Cross can analyze claims information and identify members who can benefit from our Dental Xtra program.
