If the condition of your mouth is closely tied to your overall wellness, then the folks at Delta Dental of Iowa have geared up on the healthy choices.

Last week, the company Delta Dental of Iowa introduced a program that helps employees select healthier options while they are at work.

In order to kickstart the new program, “Bike at Work,” President Jeff Russell rode his green bike around the company’s headquarters. Delta Dental of Iowa purchased six green bicycles at its home office for employees to use during their breaks and lunchtime.
