Kaiser Permanente believes that dental health is an important part of your overall health. Because our Dental Care Program is attached to a comprehensive medical care system, we offer integrated health care, often helping to catch potential physical conditions before they become serious health issues.
Why Kaiser Permanente?
The Kaiser Permanente Dental Care Program is one of the largest group dental practices in the nation. Our network of 17 dental offices, from Longview, Washington, to Salem, Oregon gives our members access to more than 125 general dentists and specialists.
Commitment to Quality
The Kaiser Permanente Dental Care Program has been continuously accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care since 1990. Our Program is one of only 37 dental practices in the nation – and the only one in the Pacific Northwest – that holds this accreditation.

Prevention & Evidence-based Treatment
Our dentists practice treatment based on scientific research, individualized care based on assessment, and risk-based guidelines for caries and periodontal disease. We use proven practices that are promoted in dental literature and, through our partnership with The Center for Health Research we also contribute to the future of the profession by participating in national dental studies.
While we were founded on and continue to offer Traditional Dental plans, we also offer Dental Choice – Participating (PPO) plans which give you access to a nationwide network of 120,000 dentists – approximately 1,800 of which are in Oregon and Washington.
In 2010, we began offering dental plans for individuals and families for our Kaiser Permanente Individuals and Family medical members residing in our Washington and Oregon Service areas. We also created PreventaMax plans where preventive and diagnostic care do not count toward annual maximums, and created a new Advantage Plus supplemental option package that includes dental, hearing aids and extra eyewear benefits for Medicare recipients who are enrolled in our Senior Advantage individual medical plans.
Cosmetic Dental Services
We also offer cosmetic dental services on a fee-for-service basis.
Our Cause is Health. Our Passion is Service. We're here to make lives better.
