Commitment to Oral Health Earns Solstice a WebHealth Award

July 10, 2013 - Plantation, FL

Understanding how oral health impacts overall health is key to wellness. Solstice recently earned a Merit for Medical Education by The National Health Information Awards program for their “Perio-maintenance” flyer. Its content ensures that their members have access to industry-best information and tools to support a healthy mouth and life. Awarded to Communications Specialist, Kate Ranta, the article covers in detail the severity of dangers poor dental hygiene can place on the human body. Studies have shown that there is a lack of awareness of the direct correlation between the neglect of dental care and cardiovascular disease, among other illnesses. Solstice believes in not only providing dental insurance to their members, but empowering them to maintain a clean, healthier lifestyle through dental cleanliness.

The recent WebHealth Award supports Solstice’s ability to serve as a source of quality dental care information and healthy habit tips to their members. This award solidifies Solstice as a leader in the dental industry through their commitment to health literacy, consumer education and oral health awareness. The winners of the awards, divided into two categories – silver and gold – had their praises sung throughout the virtual world on various social media outlets, such as Twitter and Facebook.

“Member satisfaction is linked to a solid understanding of benefits. Our member communication materials are written free of confusing insurance jargon and I am proud to see our team’s efforts rewarded by the reputable WebHealth Award program. Kate’s commitment to consumer education is evident by her award-winning writing and ability to communicate complex health information in an engaging and relatable format,” said Carlos Ferrera, Solstice Chief Operating Officer.
