When we find a position that matches our experience (and hopefully our interests), we start to wonder about the specifics of the job and company. Whether it’s flexible hours or higher wages, a variety of different benefits can influence when we change jobs. And people are changing jobs a lot more these days. American’s aren’t staying with companies for half a century like we used to. In fact, the average individual in the U.S. changes jobs about every four-and-a-half years. In addition to the schedule and the pay, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the benefits provided by your potential new employer. Why? Benefits like employer dental coverage are going to give you access to maintaining your oral and overall health. They also demonstrate how committed the potential new company is to their employees.
Unemployment rates are low and businesses are utilizing benefits like great dental coverage options to reel in the best and the brightest. So, remember when you’re on the job hunt: if your employer offers Delta Dental as their dental benefits provider, the benefits don’t stop there.
Employer Dental Benefits Mean They Care About Your Health:
Awareness around the connection between oral and overall health is growing. Employer-sponsored benefits help to keep you on the job and stay healthy. Individuals with dental benefits are more likely to go to the dentist. Did you know that 81% of individuals with dental benefits report seeing a dentist twice a year or more? This drops by 58% when we compare to uninsured individuals who visit the dentist twice a year or more.
When you go the dentist regularly, you’re able to catch any problems before they develop into something larger. Individuals with dental insurance are more likely to have restorative and “tooth-saving” procedures like fillings, crowns, and root canals done, leading to a healthier mouth with natural teeth! Keeping your natural teeth results in a healthier, happier you. Those without dental benefits are more likely to have extractions or dentures.
They Want You Well and At Work
Parents are missing two and a half days of work a year or more due to their children’s dental problems. Nip any child dental problems in the bud by taking them to a network dentist early and often. Most employers allow you to add children onto your plan as dependents. When kids have dental coverage, they’re also more likely to visit the dentist. This results in healthier smiles as they grow up. Unfortunately, children across the nation have dental caries, or cavities, which is 100 percent preventable! Promote healthy habits with activities that promote their oral health, like these.
They Want You to Save Money
Dentists in our network agreed to accept our reduced fees, so we manage the billing. You won’t ever have to negotiate fees with the dentist office. There are no claims forms to fill out because our network dentists submit them directly to Delta Dental. When you’re a member of Delta Dental of New Jersey and Connecticut, you save money because the out-of-pocket costs with our dentists are lower! You can also relax with the peace of mind that all our dentists meet the national credentialing standards.
88% of people working say “better health, dental, and vision insurance are factors they consider when choosing a job.” Are you considering the full impact a new employer can make on your oral and overall health?
