It's obvious we love the color green, but we view “green” as a verb too.

Each year, Americans use around 69 million tons of paper and paperboard. How can you reduce your carbon footprint? One way you can “go green” is with your dental benefits.But how does this help the environment?

For every 1 million subscribers who go paperless:

  • 22 million gallons of water will be conserved
  • 1,632 trees will be conserved
  • 7 tons of solid waste won’t be manufactured

Here's how to get started: 

  • Download our mobile app. You can use the app to find a dentist, access a recent claim or use our toothbrush timer tool. You don't even need a printed ID card – everything is on your device!

Ditch the paper and access your dental benefits online. It's green- just the way we (and Mother Earth) like it.
