Whether as a voluntary or paid benefit, employees appreciate dental coverage as part of their Employee Benefits Package.
Studies have shown that regular dental exams help employees stay healthier and more productive in the work place. In fact, The National Association of Dental Plans and the Centers for Disease Control have performed studies that show that employees with Dental Insurance plans have better attitudes and are less likely to suffer from depression.

The US Surgeon General says that there is a "silent epidemic" of dental and oral diseases and calls for a national effort to improve oral health among all Americans. Here are some highlights of the Surgeon General's report:
-Most adults show signs of periodontal or gingival diseases, and these diseases can affect our ability to work at home, at school, or on the job. The CDC reports that nearly one-third of all adults and children in the United States have untreated tooth decay and one in seven adults aged 35 to 44 years has gum disease.
-Acute dental problems resulted in 3.7 days of restricted work activity and 1.9 days absent from work per 100 employed persons; and 3.1 days of school were lost per year per 100 students. Dental Plans can reduce your cost of absenteeism.
-Heart disease, oral cancer, bulimia and several other life-threatening conditions such as diabetes, heart and lung diseases, stroke and low birth weight are linked to oral health and are often first detected at the dental office. Links between periodontal disease and diabetes have long been noted. Dental Plans can reduce your long term health costs.
