Three Ways to Show You Care About Remote Employees' Health
Even when they work outside the office, you can help employees maintain good oral health. Here are a few ways you can go the extra mile to contribute to their overall health.
Offer a dental plan with a strong nationwide network
A large nationwide network provides discounts and protections to your employees. It also allows them to choose from a wide selection of dentists, making it easier for all your employees – including those moving to a new city – to find a participating dentist.
Delta Dental has one of the largest networks with 3 out of 4 dentists participating nationwide.1
Help them find a dentist in a new city2
If you have an employee that recently moved:
- Encourage them to ask their new neighbors, friends or even their previous dentist for recommendations.
- Outline the benefits of choosing a dentist that participates in your plan’s network.
- Pass along a dentist search tool. Delta Dental of Illinois' Find a Dentist tool and mobile app make it easy to search for a dentist.
Give regular oral health tips3,4
You can start by encouraging employees to grab mouth-healthy snacks and drinks like cheeses, nuts, milk, fruits and veggies instead of candies, cookies, cakes, potato chips, dried fruits, sticky foods and sugared drinks. Suggest a daily routine where employees plan meals and snacks just as they would if they were working in the office.
