The 2011 Dental Benefits Survey reported that up to 92% of companies and up to 87% of employees recognise that
good dental health supports overall wellbeing. However, around 20% of employees agree that there are issues accessing
dentistry at the moment and up to 46% of companies believe this is affecting their employees' dental health. Interestingly,
up to 59% of companies agree that the cost of dentistry would put them off going to the dentist and 74% of employees
agree that the cost of dental care is rising.
Denplan recognise that this information is valuable to employee benefit decision-makers, so they have drilled down into these results further to give a more comprehensive overview.
