The Kaiser Permanente Dental Difference

For 50 years, Kaiser Permanente Northwest has been helping our members thrive with healthy smiles and dental care that connects seamlessly to their medical plans. We know that oral health is an important part of your overall health and that’s why prevention is at the core of our philosophy. Taking care of your dental health can help decrease the risk of serious medical conditions, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, oral cancer, pregnancy complications, and more.

We combine dental, medical, pharmacy, and insurance services in one easy-to-use package to help make total health care simpler and more convenient.

Total Health Solutions

Your oral health — the health of your teeth and gums — affects your overall health, medical costs, and quality of life. That’s why our medical and dental teams work together to help protect the total health of our members.

Did you know that your oral health is connected to your overall health?

  • An infection in the mouth may trigger up to 50% of heart attacks.2
  • Gum disease can increase colorectal cancer risk by almost 50%.3
  • If you’re pregnant, gum disease can increase the risk of early labor by 45%.4

Shared health records mean our dentists see when members are due for medical screenings and can even help schedule their appointments right away, which can lead to early detection if there is a problem.
