With more than 130,000 providers nationwide, Guardian offers one of the largest dental networks2 – and our network continues to grow each year. That means chances are good your employees can find a network dentist near them. And with access to network discounts, that means employees can save even more money.
Many small employers want to contribute toward the cost of dental coverage for their employees. That’s why Guardian offers new, affordable plan options designed for small groups or groups offering dental for the first time, including our new Preventive Perks and Local Elite PPO Network options.
According to 2018 data, nearly 80% of employees participate in dental insurance benefits when offered by their employer.3 That’s why Guardian conducts ongoing consumer research to determine what plan features will help employers recruit and retain talented employees.
Guardian recognizes the impact that dental benefits have on good overall wellness. That’s why we create dental plans that prioritize coverage for preventive and oral health care coverage – not just for employees, but for their families, too.
More than one in 10 adults delayed getting dental care last year because of cost, lack of insurance, or COVID-19 concerns.4 That's why Guardian is now offering a wider range of budget-conscious plans to keep your employee's oral health care on track. Offering innovative virtual care options such as Teledentistry.com, a service which allows patients to connect virtually with an emergency dentist. And byte, an option for at-home aligners and teeth whitening.
