“Through Delta Dental of South Carolina, we have 269,456 members in that state with our group, family and individual plans; a network that includes 77 percent of South Carolina’s dentists; and an office in Columbia, S.C., with eight employees who are led by Spann Laffitte, vice president of sales and account management,” said Rob Goren, president and chief executive officer of Delta Dental of Missouri. “These are not just numbers to us, they represent lives that have been directly and indirectly impacted by the devastation of the hurricane and what is still to come by way of the additional flooding expected.”
