Dr Neil has compiled the top five key reasons to consider offering dental benefits to your employees:

1. Promote a Culture of Prevention:

All of our dental insurance plans include check-ups and hygienist visits, the benefits of which are huge and can help to prevent further issues oral health developing. This helps to ensure that employees to stay in work and stay healthy.   Early detection of problems allows for less-invasive and more affordable treatment down the road, and less staff absenteeism.  All our plans can cover the whole of the family, ensuring that the prevention message extends to all.

2. Empower Employees to Manage Chronic Conditions:

Chronic oral health conditions, like gum disease, are quite common.  Dental insurance empowers employees to better manage their dental care through regular check-ups and deep cleanings. This proactive approach can significantly improve their overall oral health.  If your employees are experiencing any pre-existing conditions we can offer immediate cover.

3. Invest in a Healthier, Happier Workforce:

Extensive research demonstrates the strong link between oral health and overall well-being. Untreated conditions like gum disease can exacerbate existing medical conditions, including diabetes and heart disease. By promoting preventive care, dental insurance contributes to a healthier lifestyle and reduces the likelihood of sickness absence in employees and their dependants.

4. Boost Productivity and Reduce Absenteeism:

The Journal of Dental Nursing reports that 3 in 10 people take time off due to toothache, leading to millions of lost working days annually. Dental pain and discomfort are significant productivity disruptors. By making treatments more accessible and affordable, insurance plans can minimise employee absenteeism and reduced productivity due to illness.

5. Meet Growing Employee Demands:

With many NHS dental services struggling to meet demand, employees are increasingly looking to employers for solutions.   Reports show that over 63% of people are struggling to get an NHS dental appointment.  Offering dental insurance demonstrates your commitment to their well-being and allows access to immediate care, bypassing NHS waiting lists that can stretch for months.
