It is increasingly difficult to find a dental practice in the UK that will accept new NHS patients. Increasing privatisation has meant the demand for Dental Insurance to cover the cost of treatment, is growing rapidly. Many people have higher expectations because they now view themselves as dental customers rather than patients and are better educated about dentistry.
The Dental Insurance market is growing rapidly. From an employer’s perspective, Dental Insurance provides a low cost solution to help reduce absence due to the dental problems. From an employee’s point of view, it is one of the few staff benefits that may be used regularly.
