United Concordia Receives Awards of Recognition
HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — United Concordia, one of the nation’s largest dental insurers, is proud to announce it is the recipient of four “2011 Davey Awards” and two W3 awards. The company’s online interactive jigsaw puzzles and Baby Book of Oral Health received the awards from the International Academy of the Visual Arts (IAVA) in several categories. All winning entries were designed to benefit the company’s members by educating them about the importance of oral health care in an interactive and entertaining way.
The dental-themed jigsaw puzzles are designed as classic jigsaw puzzles and range in difficulty from easy to hard. A timer lets the user know how long it took to complete the puzzle, and the results can be shared on Facebook through an in-game link. The puzzles are designed with the user in mind. Pieces lock into place after being correctly fitted, an image of the completed puzzle is available for viewing, and the game can be paused when the player needs a break.
The Baby Book of Oral Health provides information to pregnant women and new parents about how to properly care for their baby’s oral health. The book provides dental tips as well as pages to record baby’s “dental firsts,” including first tooth and first dental visit.
“Our company recognized the need for a product that not only provided dental care instruction, but also served as a way for parents to record significant milestones and memories that will last a lifetime,” says Dr. Jerome Blum, United Concordia’s corporate dental director.
“We are so pleased that IAVA has recognized our jigsaw puzzles and Baby Book of Oral Health as innovative ways to communicate with our beneficiaries,” says Sharon Duke, director of marketing and outreach of Department of Defense (DoD) Programs at United Concordia. We are very proud of these products and are thrilled to receive these awards.”
United Concordia’s winning entries are available online at www.TRICAREdentalprogram.com in the Dental Health Center.
