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 Dentals 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.
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.
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:
- Host of the Ice Show at the Winter Games
- Host of the Delta Dental Classic, our annual
golf outing benefiting New Jersey Special Olympics.

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.
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.
