United Concordia Dental Now Offers Three Low-Cost Dental Plans

HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- United Concordia Dental now offers three low-cost PPO dental plans, named Smile for Health® - Value, that are bundled with vision benefits or discounts to employers and producers in Pennsylvania.

"We developed these three offerings in response to employer demand for lower-cost dental products that focus on wellness, especially for people who have good oral health and little dental disease," said James Bramson, D.D.S., chief dental officer. "Each plan covers oral evaluations, exams and x-rays at 100 percent, making these plans the ideal solution for employers who want to keep the health of their employees on track, while keeping their company budgets in check."

The new Smile for Health® - Value plans also include vision benefits, or discounts, designed to deliver more complete coverage with a focus on overall wellness.

"According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the impact of major vision problems annually is more than $51 billion for adults 40 years and older," said Dr. Bramson. "Our new low-cost plans are a great way for employers to round out their benefits while helping improve the health of their employees."

Employers who are looking for a lower cost alternative in a dual option program can also consider one of these three Smile for Health® - Value plans. All offer access to one of the nation's largest dental networks with more than 60,000 unique dentists at over 197,000 access points.
