Dental Benefits: A Bridge to Oral Halth and Overall Wellness
Good oral health is a crucial component of overall health and wellness. Yet one in four working Americans, many of whom have dental benefits at work, do not go to the dentist at least once a year for a checkup, let alone specific care. Not only is consistent, preventative dental care strongly related to oral health and overall wellness, but it can also significantly reduce future claims costs.
In this webinar, our Guardian panelists will share insights and findings from the latest research and discuss best practices for increasing use of preventative dental care benefits. Together they will address: market trends and insights about clinical implications, potential for savings on major claims and net claim costs, tips for employers, and the key dental plan features that contribute to stronger oral health.
