How Your Dental Benefits Can Save Trees

April 16, 2015

It’s obvious we love the color green, but we view “green” as a verb too.

Each year, Americans use around 69 million tons of paper and paperboard. How can you reduce your carbon footprint? One way you can “go green” is with your dental benefits.

But how does this help the environment?

For every 1 million subscribers who go paperless, we’d:

  • Conserve 1.22 million gallons of water
  • Save 1,632 trees
  • Prevent 52.7 tons of solid waste from being produced

Here’s how to you can help: 

  • Sign up for an online account. Everything you currently get on paper is accessible online. Visit to set up your MySmile® Personal Benefits Center account.
  • Download our mobile app. You can use the app to find a dentist, access a recent claim or use our toothbrush timer tool. You don’t even need a printed ID card – everything is on your device!

Ditch the paper and access your dental benefits online. It’s green- just the way we (and Mother Earth) like it.
