Denplan’s annual Dental Benefit Survey has shown a rise in employees asking for dental plans
In a recent survey conducted by Dental Plan, 63% of employees without a dental plan saying they would consider one if their employer offered it. The survey also highlights that 78% of employees attend the dentist at least once every two years.
Over 500 employee benefit decision makers and more than 4,000 UK adults responded to this year’s surveys. The 2013 survey also highlighted that 24% of employees agree that issues accessing NHS dentists are impacting their oral health and 69% of employers believe that a dental plan enhances employee wellbeing.
Pam Whelan, head of corporate at Denplan explains: 'Clearly we’re pleased that healthcare and wellbeing is a priority to companies and employees alike. For over 10 years, Denplan’s Corporate Division has been providing a range of employee benefit plans to companies nationwide and, more recently we’ve launched the Denplan Discount Network to bring our 180,000 employees covered, together with nearly 2,000 member dentists currently on the network. This exclusive network not only allows our corporate patients to receive discounts on any treatment received, but also promotes growth in our member’s practices, so it’s easy to see why so many of our members have signed up.'
Any practice can participate in the Denplan Discount Network, and all they have to do is offer a discount from their private fees to the employees of local companies with Denplan corporate plans. Practices are free to choose the level of discount they want to offer and Denplan will communicate with companies informing them of all the participating dentists in their area.
