Less time off. Less admin. Less expense. Our Corporate Dental Plan is a great perk for an employee. But it's also good news for the employer.
For a start, it cuts down on time taken off work for trips to the dentist (we have appointments available on evenings and Saturdays so your employees can get to us outside normal work hours). It reduces administration by your HR department as well as by the employee. Whereas dental insurance involves paying for the treatment, getting a receipt, filling in a claim form and sending it to the insurance company, our plan requires none of the above.
