What is dental insurance?

Dental insurance covers a range of treatments, hygienist visits and procedures such as fillings. They provide access to various dental treatments and costs, up to agreed limits. Research shows that a trip to the dentist can identify major health problems such as oral cancer and heart disease1 – so is a great way to reduce the impact.
