According to the American Dental Association, dental disease and discomfort are frequently overlooked reasons for employee absences and poor work performance.
Good dental 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.
