In recent years, dental plans have been consistently popular amongst employers, with around two-fifths of employers choosing to offer this benefit to their workforce both this year and in 2016*.

Employers are increasingly aware of the importance of their employees’ oral health and its role within workplace absence, but are intermediaries engaging with dental benefits to the fullest?

This webinar, hosted by COVER magazine and Simpyhealth, will feature an expert panel who will be discussing the following areas relevant to employers and intermediaries:

1) What are the greatest dental risks?
2) The benefits of dental insurance
3) What are employers and intermediaries currently doing to look after employee dental health?
4) How much of a priority is dental health to employers? 
5) How can intermediaries and employers improve buy-in and communications around dental benefits?

The webinar is live and interactive so you will have the opportunity to ask questions and take part in live opinion polls to share your views on these issues.
