A dental plan is a key component to any benefit package. The inclusion of a dental plan in employers' health offerings may actually lower overall benefits costs and reduce absenteeism. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that more than 164 million hours of work are lost due to employee dental disease or dental visits each year.
Additionally, the connection between good dental health and good overall health is well documented; according to the Academy of General Dentistry, as many as 90 percent of systemic diseases, which affect several parts of the body, also show up in the mouth.
