Healthcare coverage enhances employee morale. Not only is the level of benefits coverage important, but your employees also want options when it comes to who they can visit for care.
Network size impacts the number of dentists who are able to serve your employees. The larger the network, the more likely your employees can stay with their current dentist and get the most out of their benefits plan. If employees are happy, so are you!
A few things to keep in mind:
• Consider dependents
The network size should be large enough to meet the needs of your employees and their dependents.
• Location, location, location
It’s advantageous to have at least 2 dental offices in the network within 5 or 10 miles of your office. (Less time out of the office for dental visits.)
• Share the benefits
Let employees know the benefits of network size.

Make sure you and your employees know the benefits of their network today!
