Group Dental Insurance Plans

Group Dental Insurance is widely viewed as the second most important behind health insurance in the eyes of employees. The coverage ranges from preventative to major services such as crowns, bridges, and dentures.

As a business dental insurance broker, Greystone offers small business dental insurance to companies with two or more employees. These plans can be customized in terms of the cost share an employee will pay for procedures as well as the contribution split between employee and employer.

Dental Plan Customizations

Group Dental Insurance plans can be customized to the needs of the company and its employees.  One of the first decisions a group will have to make is how the plan will be funded. Employers can contribute anywhere from 0 to 100% of the dental premium for employees. Employers can also decide to contribute a percent of premium to dependents as they see fit.

There are a number of carriers in the market that offer similar plans. When deciding on a carrier, we look at price, coverage level, and contract. Most business dental plans we write are PPO plans that offer a nationwide network. The network does vary from carrier to carrier so an evaluation of network coverage compared to your current employees dentists is an important consideration when determining carrier.

Dental coverage is broken down into three primary procedure types, Preventitive, Basic, and Major services. Orthodontics is another area that can be added to the coverage.

We customize dental policies to optimize the benefits and price that best suits each group. This is done by customizing the employee coinsurance percent for each procedure types as well as changing deductible and calendar year maximums.
