Kelly: Welcome back to “Simply put”. I’m Kelly from Guardian, here to answer your questions about Voluntary Benefits in terms we can all understand.
Today we’re talking to Denise, a business owner in Naperville, Illinois. Denise—what’s going on?
Denise: (Wearing a face mask) Hey Kelly. So, I’m reviewing benefits plans for my employees and, with COVID and social distancing, I’m wondering…what’s going on with Dental Insurance?
Kelly: Denise, I’m glad you asked. Did you know (She pulls out a homemade sign with “40%” on it) a recent Guardian study shows that 40% of families experienced a dental issue during quarantine that they normally would have gone to the dentist for.
Denise: (Nodding and pointing to her mask) Tell me about it.
Kelly: Here’s the thing. TZe world is getting back to normal…or a ‘new normal’ right?…in fact, 8 out of 10 adults say they will be comfortable going back to the dentist by the end of the year. Plus, simply put, people who get dental benefits through work are more than (pulls out a homemade sign with “2X” on it) twice as likely – TWICE! - to get regular dental care compared to those without.
Denise: (Nodding. Her mask now has a huge, toothy grin drawn on it with Sharpie.)
That’s good to know.
Kelly: (pointing to mask) Oh, I like it! And there are lots of things you can use your benefits for—from in-person visits to teledentistry to innovative programs like
Denise: (Shaking her head, no.) No that looks great!
Kelly: Thank you! What’s even better…studies show that good oral health equates to good overall health. So, as an employer, you’re helping your employees stay healthy…just by offering dental benefits. And that’s something everyone can feel good about. Oh…don’t forget to floss.
