Dental insurance plans are critical to employee health and wellness because they: 

 

Help employees stay healthy

Dental plans generally cover 100% of preventive care, including checkups, X-rays, cleanings, and other diagnostic and preventative services. Having dental insurance increases the chance employees will seek out preventive services before an issue creates more serious health concerns, potentially requiring costly procedures. 78% of Americans are more likely to seek preventive or restorative care, if they have dental insurance.5

With more than 75% of all U.S. dentists in our network and the largest effective discount on dental services, we make it easy for your employees to get the care they need. The result? More frequent preventive appointments, fewer incidences of major and emergency dental services, and improved overall health.
