Members have access to quality care, as needed - something more than 8 million current Guardian members enjoy. So choosing Guardian for group dental insurance isn’t just an obvious choice. It’s a smart one.

Group Dental Insurance Ratings

Offer employees group dental insurance that focuses on overall health

There's a reason your employees want and deserve dental insurance. Without good oral care, people are 67% more likely to have heart disease; 50% more likely to have osteoporosis, and 29% more likely to have diabetes2

Group Dental Insurance 75 Percent Importance

Guardian is committed to keeping members healthier by helping them save on important oral care treatments. Guardian covers oral cancer screenings, including ViziLite Plus, enhanced periodontal treatments, dental implants, and an additional cleaning after the maximum is met.

We also offer an array of features to extend the annual maximum, adding more value to benefits, including:

  • Preventive Advantage, which enables members to get dental exams, cleanings, X-rays, and fluoride treatments without deductions - all from their annual maximum.
  • Maximum Rollover, which helps members save by rolling over a portion of each member's unused annual maximum for future use. This helps promote regular annual dental visits and helps make future treatments more affordable. Rewards are increased when a contracted dentist is visited.

Group Dental Insurance Features 

We can customize dental insurance solutions for companies of any size

Guardian Group Dental insurance plans are highly flexible and are available for 2+ employees. Working with your broker, you can design the plan - or plans - that best meet your needs. Choose between PPO and DMHO (in select markets). Or even consider a Dual Choice option. Then consider whether you want to offer an employer-paid, voluntary, or Administrative Services Only (ASO) option. Plus, if you have 50 or fewer employees, we have ACA-compliant plans that are also available on the Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) Marketplace in most states.

The advantages of an ASO dental insurance plan

These self-funded dental plan options could make great sense to you - no matter what your company size. With our ASO Dental offering you can have:

  • 13% – 17% cost savings, on average (savings vary by company)
  • Better cash flow
  • No ACA taxes
  • Fewer state regulations

Our ASO Dental offering puts the power of our network to work for you

Our ASO gives you access to the same innovative plan options and strong and growing network as fully insured employers, which may be one of the reasons we're among the top choices in the category1. Our claims processing software helps save your company money by detecting incorrectly submitted claim codes and correcting them. Our direct billing option helps you with cash flow. Guardian pays claims and you are billed at the end of the month.

We also offer an innovative ASO Hybrid plan that gives your business the flexibility to take advantage of the best of self-funded and fully insured plans. This plan offers fixed monthly costs with a 105% or 110% aggregate stop loss - so the plan is funded at your maximum liability. If claims run lower than expected, the carrier will refund dollar for dollar to the employer or the employer can use the funds to offset future liability.
