Changing of the guard at Delta Dental

Kate Paul recently retired from Delta Dental of Colorado after 15 years at the helm. The nonprofit organization committed to oral health prospered under Paul. Annual revenue increased by 122 percent — from $161 million to $358 million — and membership grew by 76 percent to a current high of 1.2 million. 

Delta Dental also increased its corporate philanthropy. She started the Delta Dental of Colorado Foundation and inspired such signature programs as the CU Heroes Clinic, which provides free dental care to student veterans of U.S. military service; Land of Smiles, which has helped 70,000 Colorado children learn about good dental health; and SpringRock Dental, which provides sliding-scale services.
