Employees throughout the country rank dental care as the number-two benefit they would like employers to provide, right behind group health. There are various Group Dental plans available that you as an employer can offer, which allow participants to get both preventive and restorative care.
Group Dental insurance can be offered as a traditional plan, where employees can choose their own dentist and receive more flexibility and higher coverage levels for dental work, or an employer can opt for a preferred provider plan, a prevention and minor-restorative plan, or a dental health maintenance organization (DHMO) plan.
Each plan comes with its own deductible structure and rules, but all provide affordable options for both employers and employees. Some dental plans will cover orthodontic care and other appliances, and many offer dependent coverage.
