Nearly half of companies considering a dental plan - Denplan

clock

Denplan's annual Dental Benefit Survey has evolved to reflect that dental plans are viewed by employees as the most important benefit in demonstrating employer support for their wellbeing.

The ‘Denplan Health and Wellbeing Survey 2014' indicates 68% of employers with a dental benefit agree that it helps to manage time taken off for sickness, while 46% of companies are considering adding a dental plan in the coming year.

In addition, 62% of employees would consider a dental plan if offered one; while 56% said they would appreciate access to one as part of a package.

Colin Perry, corporate channel manager at Denplan, commented: "It makes sense that dental benefits are rising in popularity as one of the few healthcare benefits that are preventive in their nature.

"Other healthcare benefits focus on helping employees when something goes wrong, but dental plans actively encourage regular attendance at the dentist and the prevention and detection of oral disease."

"With 35% of respondents offering a Dental Plan to their staff, this makes dental the third most popular selection behind only PMI and Childcare Vouchers."
