Our mission

Everyone deserves a healthy smile

A healthy smile can break the ice, brighten a day, and warm your heart. You feel like there's nothing you can't do. At Delta Dental, we believe in the power of your smile.

At Delta Dental of South Dakota, we believe everyone deserves a healthy smile. That's why it's our mission to promote and advance oral health in South Dakota.

We provide dental benefits to employers and individuals to protect smiles and keep them healthy. And as a nonprofit organization, we care about the people and communities of South Dakota.

Since 1997, we've invested more than $41 million in programs that support our mission to improve the oral and overall health of South Dakotans in various ways.

Our passion to help kids, especially those who can't afford or access dental care, is why our Mobile Program serves more than 6,250 kids across South Dakota every year.

Mobile Program

In school classrooms, at community events, and cross-training sessions for medical staff, our Oral Health Educators teach dental hygiene and oral health to thousands of South Dakotans of all ages.

Education outreach

Access to dental care depends on oral health professionals to provide care. That's why we provide grant support to higher education programs for dental hygienists and dental assistants and offer a loan repayment program for dentists.
