Beyond prevention

Blue Dental plans do well beyond preventive and diagnostic services. Your employees will have peace of mind knowing they're covered for cavities, oral surgery, root canals and even orthodontics if you choose. And, like Wellmark's health networks, your employees can count on reliable coverage from a broad network of dentists.


  • Preventive dental care.
  • Simplified plan offerings.
  • Access to more than 1,600 dentists across Iowa and bordering counties.
  • Nationwide dental network with more than 99,000 dental providers.

What's covered?

Blue Dental plans encourage regular preventive dental care to keep your employees' teeth healthy and prevent future problems. They cover check-ups and cleanings, as well as routine diagnostic and restorative services — all at little or no out-of-pocket costs to your employees. For optimal health, all Wellmark dental plans even offer extra cleanings for certain at-risk members, such as those who are pregnant or those with diabetes.
