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 babies may be associated with 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 preventive 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. As the exclusive partner for Green Shield Canada’s Prism health and dental programs, we focus on providing a variety of options. Our dental plans offer Basic Coverage, Comprehensive Basic and Major Services coverage. Within most Prism programs, dental insurance is available in a variety of levels to provide the right kind of coverage at the right price for your family.

Dental Insurance Options Available Through Special Benefits

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

We offer the Prism line of products through Green Shield Canada to provide the following programs:

  • Prism Spectra: High maximum on a full spectrum of benefits.
  • Prism Precision: Guaranteed enrollment and comprehensive dental coverage.
  • Prism Continuum: Available to those who apply within 90 days of losing group coverage (also applies to prescription drug coverage).

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 practical alternative for basic coverage for services and treatments that are no longer 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, Follow-Me and Manulife Association lines from Manulife Financial to give the following benefits:

  • Manulife Flexcare DentalPlus: Use flexible add-ons to create a customized dental insurance plan for your family.
  • Manulife Follow-Me: Get uninterrupted coverage when losing group benefits, as long as you apply within 60 days (also applies to prescription drug coverage).
  • Manulife Association: Varying levels of coverage with Base, Bronze, Silver and Gold plans.
