With more and more businesses offering dental and vision insurance, not doing the same can make it more difficult to compete for the best talent. In fact, according to a 2020 UBA Health Plan Survey, more than 80% of employers reported offering dental insurance. while approximately 65% offered vision coverage.
Offering preventative care is one of the greatest benefits of dental insurance. Medical professionals often link oral care with overall health. For example, too much plaque can lead to gum disease, which is linked to other serious conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
