Group Benefits: Expense - or - Essential Recruiting + Retention Tool?

What would a group health insurance plan look like for a practice with 3-25 staff members covered under the plan (including practice owner)?

About this event

Running a healthy dental practice requires a team of dependable, healthy employees.

Quality health-care coverage for you and your employees can help your business in many ways - from job satisfaction and consistent productivity to career longevity and consistently good health. In this environment of wellness, benefits matter.


September 20, 2022 Agenda:

1. The Growing Importance of Benefit Programs to Maintain Worker Wellness and Satisfaction

2. Facing Down “The Great Resignation” – The Challenge of Hiring and Keeping Talent

3. Personalization – Wellness, Work environment, and Self-care: The New Must-Haves

4. Beyond a Benefits Plan – Emerging Trends

5. Designing a Benefits Plan that Meets Your Practice Needs


So, what would a group health insurance plan look like for a small-to-mid-size dental practice (3-25 staff members)?

Group health insurance for small businesses resembles group plans for larger companies:

---> the owner offers either one plan (or a few options for plans)

---> employees join the group

---> everyone is covered under one policy

There are plenty of ways to control your benefits costs without leaving your employees without health insurance and other benefits.

Why does it matter to offer health insurance benefits as a dental practice owner?

Having high job satisfaction can make a big difference!

Offering benefits is one huge aspect of retaining and appreciating the people you wouldn’t be able to continue to run your successful practice without...

---> your office manager

---> your dental hygienists

---> your dental assistants

AND YOU! (Dentists can cover themselves and their families under the plan).
