We are always telling our clients how great dental insurance is. With so much love in the air this Valentine's we thought it was the perfect time to share the benefits of taking out a company dental insurance plan.

Dental insurance is designed to cover the costs associated with dental care. It offers protection against unexpected dental expenses by paying all, or a portion of bills presented by a dentist or other providers of dental services.

Our dental insurance plans are available for companies looking to offer cover to their staff for a choice of different dental conditions. It is becoming a very popular employee benefit and a great tool for staff retention.

Simply contact us to see what is available on our different policies to find the best dental insurance for you and your employees.

Qualifying Period

Some dental insurance plans have a no waiting period before you can claim for maintenance cover such as check-ups and scale and polishing. However, treatment cover usually has a qualifying period of between two or three months before you can make a claim.


It is usual for the dental insurance provider to cover costs for maintenance benefits in full up to certain annual limits, however it is also usual for customers to pay a deductible on treatment cover typically 25%. This varies from company to company.


Choose a provider who allows you to continue to use your existing dentist and has a simple and efficient claims handling service. It is usual for people to continue to pay dental bills direct to their dentist and then claim costs back from their insurance company. It is important to avoid a time consuming claims process.

Using an independent dental insurance broker to obtain the best cover for your requirements will save you a lot of time and effort and can ensure that you get the most appropriate cover for yourself, your family and your employees.
