For more than 40 years, Kaiser Permanente Northwest has been helping our members thrive with healthy smiles and dental care that connects seamlessly to their health plans. Prevention is at the core of our philosophy, and we want to help you achieve and maintain a healthy smile. We combine dental, medical, pharmacy, and insurance services in one easy-to-use package to help make health care simpler and more convenient.
Our medical and dental teams work as a team to help protect the total health of our members. Shared health records mean our dentists see when members are due for medical screenings and can help schedule their appointment right away. In fact, did you know that Kaiser Permanente members with both medical and dental coverage weigh less, smoke less, and visit the hospital and emergency department less often than members with just medical coverage?2 Learn more about our COVID-19 safety measures and what to expect at your next dental appointment.
