OUR STORY

IDAHO'S PREMIER DENTAL INSURANCE 

After many years of practicing dentistry, the need for a better insurance solution became clear to Northwest Dental Benefits founder Dr. Kory Wilson, DDS. With the clear vision of improving smiles and overall wellness, Northwest Dental Benefits (NWDB) was established and became the first new Idaho dental insurance company in 40 years. 

The Northwest Dental Benefits team is dedicated to delivering highly personalized service in independent dental care settings. With seamless claim management and industry leading benefits, our Providers are uniquely equipped to provide complete, simplified coverage with private practice service standards.
  
Because of our strong local roots, Northwest Dental Benefits takes pride in being Idaho's premier dental insurance choice. Unlike larger national competitors, our team personally interacts with Groups and Members to provide the exceptional experience we believe they deserve.
