Dental Insurance Products
For decades, Dental Insurance was considered ’luxury’ coverage: something most people would never need. Today, new technologies, improved diagnostics and advanced medical research have resulted in a deeper understanding of the vital role oral health plays in overall wellness. According to an article published by the Mayo Clinic, oral health may affect, be affected by or contribute to a variety of diseases and conditions, including:
- Endocarditis – infection of the inner lining of the heart
- Cardiovascular Disease – heart disease, clogged arteries and strokes have been linked to periodontitis, a severe form of gum disease.
- Premature births / Low birth weight
- Alzheimer’s – tooth loss before age 35 may be a risk factor for Alzheimer’s.
- Immune System Disorders
This is important to insurance agents because it is important to your clients. Organizations such as the American Dental Association, the National Dental Association and the American Association for Dental Research have been very successful in spreading the word. Local dentists, orthodontists, periodontists and other dental health professionals across the country share this information with your clients.
Your clients want healthy teeth…and that means they need dental insurance. Like every medical field, the cost of dental care has increased dramatically in the last decade. Improved diagnostics mean more procedures, increased treatment regiments and additional costs.
By providing dental insurance, you do more than earn new business and increased profits. You’re helping to improve the health of your clients by making quality dental care affordable. You’re protecting their financial well-being by reducing the risk of serious illness or disease as a result of oral health issues. Offering Dental Insurance is a good thing for you, your clients and their families.
