Building confidence, self-esteem, and overall well-being in the workforce can start with just a simple smile. That’s why our dental benefits are built from real customer insights with a focus on quality preventive care. So employees can come to work feeling, thinking, performing – and smiling – their best.

DHMO coverage creates more access to dental care for Arizona employees:

Guardian offers a DHMO/Managed Care option in coordination with Total Dental Administrators (TDA):

  • It’s easy to use. Members know exactly what they will  pay – with no claim forms, deductibles, or maximums
  • There’s no lifetime maximum on orthodontia. That means help with covering orthodontia for every member of the family who needs it.
  • Savings on required cleanings. At least two preventive exams and cleanings per year, covered at 100%
  • Access to specialty services. Members can be assured they will save when they need care from a specialist – like an oral surgeon or periodontist.

Pair DHMO with Guardian’s PPO, and you unlock Dual Choice

That means you can give employees more dental plan choices based on their needs and budgets, as well as more affordable access to even more modern dental features via the PPO option, including:

All plan options are backed by strong dental networks1

Dental members have access to cost saving PPO and DHMO networks. That means chances are good your employees can find a network dentist near them -- and with access to network discounts, employees can truly use and value their dental benefits.
