Dental insurance

Dental insurance, the key to better dental care and overall health

Your oral health can affect the overall well-being of your entire body. According to Health Canada, heart disease, diabetes and even low birth weight in babies may be caused by poor oral health. Ultimately, untreated oral diseases can have a negative impact on your quality of life. That’s why it’s important to make regular trips to the dentist—before recurring problems arise—to keep your teeth in good condition.

So how does dental insurance fit into good oral health? Dental insurance can reduce your out-of-pocket costs for routine and unexpected dental care, plus provide the peace of mind that comes from having the financial protection of insurance. With dental insurance, you have better access to the preventative care you need to keep your teeth healthy and beautiful. The better you take care of your teeth, the lower your overall costs for dental care will be.

Special Benefits Insurance Services makes it easy to obtain affordable dental insurance, which is important given the increasing cost of dental care. Our dental plans offer Basic Coverage, Comprehensive Basic and Major Services coverage.

To provide you with a broad range of dental insurance options, we work with Green Shield Canada, GMS and Manulife Financial to offer competitive rates on the kinds of coverage that can protect your family’s oral health for years to come.

The Prism Spectra program is another option if you are leaving a company group plan or don’t currently have health and dental coverage in place and are looking for comprehensive coverage complemented by high benefit maximums.

The Prism Precision program may be right for you if you are looking for a comprehensive dental plan. There are 2 dental options to choose from P3 and P4; both of which have varying dental maximums. Both of these plans also include coverages for services and treatments that are not covered by the government. No medical questionnaire required, and coverage is guaranteed, even for pre-existing conditions.

The Prism Continuum program may be your best solution if you, your spouse, or your dependents are losing, or have lost your company group health benefits within the last 90 days and are looking for guaranteed coverage even with pre-existing conditions.

We also carry the Flexcare®, FollowMe™, Guaranteed Issue Enhanced Plan and Manulife Association lines from Manulife Financial to give the following benefits:
