Why Guardian?

We’ve built a robust network that delivers choice and savings

As one of the largest in the area, Guardian’s group of dental providers is designed so that DC Metro Area employers can be proud to share it with their employees. With thousands of local network dentists,1 7 out of 10 of our DC-area members access care from in-network dentists.2 By seeing a provider in our group, our members can also save almost 50% on care with no additional out-of-pockets costs.3

Voluntary benefits, simply explained

When you give simple answers to common employee questions about voluntary benefits, employees are more likely to enroll. Our video series “Simply Put” has the answers you need to make an impact. Watch the full series here.

Flexible Plans

Choose from an array of options that promote good oral care, including fluoride treatments, additional cleanings, and oral cancer screenings. Guardian offers the ability to roll over unused plan maximum dollars for future use.

Innovative Options

We are constantly coming up with innovative new product options that can offer value and added savings as employee needs and preferences change — from teledentistry options, to cost-effective at-home orthodontic options like byte®.

Administrative Services Only (ASO) Plan

Our ASO plan, available for companies with 25+ employees, gives you access to the same plans and network as fully-insured plans. We also offer an innovative ASO Level-Funded plan that offers fixed monthly costs funded at your maximum liability. If claims run lower than expected, we will refund the surplus dollar for dollar.

Benefits administration technology

New technologies are making life easier and more convenient for everyone. With so many things being simplified by new tech, it only makes sense that the complex world of benefits administration would get a tech-lift too.

Fortunately, Guardian is leading the charge to modernize the enrollment process and transform the experience. Learn more.

The College Tuition Benefit

Guardian dental plans can include our College Tuition Benefi­t — a rewards-based program that can help employees save for college. Members earn rewards each year, and for each type of Guardian coverage, which can be used at hundreds of colleges and universities.

Plus, Guardian offers a full product portfolio making it easier to offer and administer a comprehensive benefit plan.
