About Dental Health Services

Dental Health Services is here to help you. A leader in the provision of dental care and benefits to individuals, families, trade unions, employers, and associations, Dental Health Services takes pride in delivering quality dental care at an affordable price. Plan members, groups, brokers, and dentists receive outstanding, personal service.

An employee-owned dental benefits company, Dental Health Services is recognized for its commitment to overall health and quality service. It has been offering dental plans to groups and individuals throughout California for 35 years and Washington State for 25 years. With the addition of a network of dentists in the state of Oregon, Dental Health Services will continue to foster its mission of bringing quality, affordable dental care to those who need it.

Founded by Godfrey Pernell, DDS in 1974, Dental Health Services was one of the first companies to specialize in the provision of prepaid dental plans, which helped set industry standards in service and care. The prepaid dentistry concept represented a new, effective way to deliver quality and affordable dental care. Dr. Pernell had 1,500 appointments scheduled before his doors opened. “We really had a tiger by the tail,” says Dr. Pernell of those early years.

Dental Health Services Values

Dental Health Services is one of the few dental plans in the country with a dentist as its chairman. During these difficult economic times, Dental Health Services works hard to advocate for its members, ensuring they receive the quality services they need at the price they can afford. Dental Health Services will maintain its dedication to excellence with attention to member needs, sensitivity to market changes, and innovations in dental care.

The commitment to finding new ways to better serve its members will continue to set Dental Health Services apart in the health industry. This independently owned company continues to succeed with a pioneering spirit, forging new paths in dental care through conscientious service, and progressive plan design. In addition, a rigorous 107-point Quality Assurance program helps Dental Health Services maintain high standards in care while emphasizing oral health and wellness.
