Group Dental Insurance
In the past, employers would carry the entire cost of the most valued core benefits of an employee group plan--health, dental, vision, disability and life insurance. More recently, with the costs of these policies rising significantly, employers have dropped some of these core benefits from their group coverage, namely dental and vision.
Some experts advise that this could cost the employer more in the long run. Regular dental and vision exams help employees stay healthier and more productive in the work place. In fact, simple routine visits to the dentist and eye doctor, which are usually covered 100% by insurers, help to detect serious underlying conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and others. The National Association of Dental Plans and the Centers for Disease Control have performed studies that show that employees with Dental Insurance and Vision Insurance plans have better attitudes and are less likely to suffer from depression, a common condition these days.
Dental Plans offer a variety of diagnostic, preventative care and corrective services including cleanings, exams, x-rays, fillings, root canals, orthodontia for children, and emergency care while traveling.
Sheridan Benefits helps employers put Dental Insurance coverage back into their group plan at affordable premiums, or as quality voluntary benefits at discounted rates.
