Dental benefits fall outside the realm of standard medical benefits; nonetheless, these aspects are an important part of an employee’s health and overall wellness. By choosing to provide dental insurance benefits, employers are not only supplying their employees with much needed assistance, but also achieving a system of loyalty and trust that aids to the productivity and quality of their workplace.
Biannual dental check-ups aren’t fun or cheap. However, these dreaded visits are a crucial part of oral hygiene and general personal health. Not only do regular check-ups help to detect cavities and infection, they may also uncover more serious issues such as diabetes or oral cancer. Dental check-ups and treatments can prove to be very costly for the uninsured. This may be an important factor as to why 33% of Americans have untreated tooth decay (CDC, 2002). Employers who provide their employees with dental insurance benefits are helping to support their valued employees’ basic but sometimes crippling health necessities; not to mention contributing to a happier work environment. 32% of Americans cite bad breath as the least attractive trait of their co-workers!
