Understanding the importance of dental coverage to both your workforce and company is the key to an effective Group Dental Plan.

Why Dental Insurance Matters

Dental health is an integral part of overall health and plays a crucial role in maintaining a high quality of life. Routine dental check-ups, cleanings, and preventive care are essential for preventing oral health issues and addressing any concerns promptly. However, the cost of dental treatments can be prohibitive for many individuals and families, leading to deferred care or financial strain.

For those reasons, many individuals seek employers that provide dental coverage. If your competitor provides this coverage and you do not, you have a workforce retention / recruiting disadvantage. Alternatively, the tides can be turned. Your company could be offering benefits and acquiring more skilled, dedicated employees.
