Dental coverage pays off in more than smiles

Here’s something your clients and their employees can likely agree on: Dental coverage is an important part of any benefits plan. It’s essential to the 25.9% of adults ages 20 to 44 who have untreated tooth decay,1 as well as to the 87% of employers who see it as a differentiator.2 And while dental care is primarily about healthy teeth, it’s also about a healthy mind and body – and a healthier bank account.
