Brokers: What Your Clients Want in a Dental Plan

By Jill Hamilton on May 7, 2015 in Insurance


Dental Benefits contribute to employee retention and satisfaction. What exactly are employees looking for? Here are some considerations:

Trying to find the right dental plan for a company and employees can be stressful, especially with so many options available. As a broker, your clients look to you now more than ever to help them decide which benefits plans are right for their needs.

So what do employers want from a dental insurance provider? Below are key points Delta Dental suggests you consider:

One size doesn’t fit all.

No two clients are the same, and neither are their insurance needs. As the nation's oldest and most experienced dental benefits carrier, we offer a wide variety of plans for groups of all sizes. We also provide creative options for groups with limited budgets.

Network access increases value.

Delta Dental has the largest dental network in Iowa and in the United States, and with a broader network, it's more likely that employees and their family members will be able to visit their preferred dentists while taking advantage of in-network savings.  

  • Delta Dental Premier is the largest provider network in the country, with 148,000 participating
  • The Delta Dental PPO network has more than 95,000 participating providers.
  • A recent dental network study shows that Delta Dental’s PPO Plan delivers the industry’s best effective discount – averaging 3% nationally on paid claims.

Employees want dental benefits.

The number of businesses providing dental benefits has increased 22% over the past 15 years alone, reflecting this growing demand. Demand for dental benefits will likely continue to rise as Millennials enter the workforce; new grads rank dental insurance among the top 5 most important workplace benefits.
