HARRISBURG, Pa. (Sept. 20, 2010) – United Concordia Dental has launched a new mobile app that can help users find answers to oral health and dental wellness questions and much more.

“The number of Americans using Smartphones grows each day.

United Concordia members will find that this tool can provide the information they need – when, where and how they want it.”

United Concordia’s free app allows users to:

  • Learn about oral health and wellness, such as proper brushing and flossing

United Concordia members who have the company’s individual product, iDental®, also can use the app to:
