According to the American Dental Association, dental disease and discomfort are frequently overlooked reasons for employee absences and poor work performance.
Good oral health, achieved in part by regular dental check ups, can help keep employees at work and away from cavities, gingivitis and other serious infections. Smile … Anthem’s dental plans cover a wide range of important dental services, all while controlling costs.
Anthem offers both a Dental PPO and a DHMO for you to choose from.
Our Dental Blue® PPO product offering is based on a three-tier network that offers employers the opportunity to balance access and affordability at multiple price points. Dental Blue contracted dentists are credentialed providers. And, our contracted specialists — like oral surgeons and periodontists — participate in all three Dental Blue networks. View the Dental Blue Flash Demo or call your Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield sales representative to learn more about our Dental Blue PPO options for large group and small group.
Anthem Dentacare offers the most value for your benefit dollar by using only participating Dentacare centers.
