What is dental insurance?

Dental insurance provides coverage for dental and oral health procedures carried out by licensed professionals. This can range from routine check-ups and preventative care through to major operations, depending on the level of coverage.

Dental plans are offered as part of our workplace benefits, helping you provide affordable dental coverage that Canadians can count on.  

What does dental insurance cover?

As the employer offering the plan, you can specify the percentage of dental costs covered, or you can set a fixed dollar amount of coverage per year for:

  • Basic coverage

    Includes ongoing care, exams, radiographs, X-rays and tests.

  • Major coverage

    Includes crowns, onlays, dentures and bridgework.

  • Orthodontic coverage

    Includes ortho-exams, X-rays, radiographs, casts, braces and retainers.

Why offer dental insurance?

Canadians without dental coverage have to pay out-of-pocket for treatments that can sometimes amount to thousands of dollars.

As provincial healthcare may not always extend to dental, offering it as part of your workplace benefit package can help employees access necessary treatment.  

It also encourages them to attend regular appointments, which can help support healthy habits and reduce absences.
