It’s easy to put on a smile. It’s not always easy—or affordable—to make sure your smile is healthy and pain free.

At Essence, we want to make sure that anything that affects your health is covered and that also means your teeth. That’s why every Essence plan includes dental coverage for no additional premium.

Rich Allowances

Rich Allowances

Most of our plans include rich dental allowances for combined preventive and comprehensive services—as much as $5,000 or $7,000 per year depending on the plan and service area.


Whether you simply need coverage for preventive dental services such as exams and X-rays or you want more comprehensive coverage for things like fillings and implants, we have a plan for you.

Did You Know?

Your oral health is more important than you might realize. Problems in your mouth can affect the rest of your body. Oral bacteria and the inflammation associated with a severe form of gum disease might play a role in some diseases such as endocarditis, cardiovascular disease and pneumonia. Conditions like diabetes and osteoporosis can affect your oral health. Taking care of your oral health is an investment in your overall health.
