Dental Insurance Plans for UK Employers

The Oral Health Foundation estimates that more than 1.2 million days of work have been missed in the last year due to oral health problems. A Cigna group dental plan is an ideal way to encourage employees to access regular dental care. This helps prevent absences from work to fix dental problems and can identify other medical issues before they become serious and costly.

About our Dental Plans

Good oral health plays an important role in overall health and well-being. From affordable discounted schemes to comprehensive dental cover, there’s a Cigna dental plan to suit every need and budget.

Our dental plans include regular check-ups, scale & polishes as well as cover for those unexpected oral health problems. Thanks to our Healthy Discounts network of dentists, there is also the option to pay 20% less for dental treatments.

What are the benefits of dental insurance for your employees?

Regular dental visits do much more than keep your employees’ smiles bright.

  • A UK dental health insurance plan offers employees more affordable access to dentists. In turn, employees are more likely to seek regular, preventative dental care.
  • Dental check-ups detect oral issues before they become painful and costly to resolve. They can also help to spot gum disease, which is linked to medical conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.
  • Mouth cancer, or oral cancer, affects round 8,300 people each year in the UK**. A dentist can often spot the early signs of mouth cancer, when treatment is more likely to be successful.
