Checkout HOW®, Health through Oral Wellness
Health through Oral Wellness® is now available to subscribers and their dependents in more than 8,600 of DDOK’s fully-insured groups. Members with access to HOW® may receive the approved assessment to determine if they are at higher risk for developing caries and/or periodontal disease.
DDOK members who are eligible for HOW® enhanced benefits and receive qualifying score(s) on the assessment will receive additional preventive benefits to help them achieve optimal oral health. The approved clinical risk assessment associated with HOW® must be administered in a dentist office.
