Philanthropy - Our Community

For more than 40 years, Delta Dental of New Jersey has provided quality dental benefits and superior customer service. While our customer service record is well known, you may not be aware of Delta Dental’s involvement within the community. As a concerned corporate citizen, we pride ourselves on the variety of programs we have instituted or supported that aid the needy, educate the community, and assist worthwhile organizations. Here are some of the major ways Delta Dental supports our community.

Captain Supertooth

Delta Dental of New Jersey, through our Foundation, sponsors an educational program for elementary schools throughout New Jersey and Connecticut. To learn more about this program, visit our Captain Supertooth Program page for more information.

PANDA (Prevent Abuse and Neglect through Dental Awareness)

PANDA is an educational program sponsored by our Foundation for dental office personnel, as well as teachers, school nurses, and any other groups of people who work with children, on how to recognize and report suspected child abuse and neglect.

Special Olympics

Delta Dental of New Jersey has been a proud sponsor of Special Olympics New Jersey since 1991. Currently, we are a Premier Sponsor of Special Olympics New Jersey. As a sponsor, we have had the honor of funding this worthwhile organization in many ways:

Holiday Gift Drive

Each year, Delta Dental selects a needy charity and conducts a gift-giving event to coincide with the holidays. Recipients have included:

Thanksgiving Food Drive

During the month of November, Delta Dental employees support local needy families to provide them with a nutritious Thanksgiving meal. All of the food goes to families who utilize the services of Hope House. In addition to the numerous baskets of food that are donated, Delta Dental employees also make monetary donations to purchase supermarket gift certificates for the families.

Blood Drive

Because Delta Dental recognizes the critical need for blood donations, we conduct an annual blood drive. In a joint effort with the New Jersey Blood Services, Delta Dental employees volunteer to donate blood for our drive. All of the blood collected goes to more than 40 hospitals in New Jersey, including all the trauma and tertiary care centers in the area.
