Solstice Earns Two Communicator Awards

June 16, 2017

Dental and vision insurer Solstice Benefits, Inc., (Solstice) was named a Communicator Award winner for the fifth consecutive year, earning Distinction honors for A Decade Without Dental Insurance consumer health infographic and the highest achievement, the Award of Excellence, for its Lead Generation Campaign. These awards represent a consistent commitment to providing consumers with oral health communications that encourage positive health outcomes.

Solstice believes in the importance of communicating the critical roles dental health and oral hygiene play in overall health. Research shows more than half of adults over 30 have gum disease, making them 67 percent more likely to have heart disease.

“Recognition for our work communicating the value of dental benefits and oral health is an honor,” said Solstice COO Carlos Ferrera. “Many people are not aware that periodontal disease leads to, and can worsen, conditions like diabetes, dementia, low birth weight and kidney disease. We believe in educating consumers about that connection and improving people’s lives through effective communication.”

The winners of the 23rd Annual Communicator Awards, announced by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, received over 6,000 entries received from across the US and around the world this year. The Communicator Awards is the largest and most competitive awards program honoring creative excellence for communications professionals.

“We are both excited and amazed by the quality of work received for the 23rd Annual Communicator Awards. This year’s class of entries is a true reflection of the progressive and innovative nature of marketing and communications,” noted Linda Day, executive director of the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts. She added, “On behalf of the entire Academy I want to applaud this year’s Communicator Awards entrants and winners for their dedication to perfecting their craft as they continue to push the envelope of creativity.”
