In brief: Dental benefits

Dental benefits are something negotiated by your company and a insurance company.
They decide which procedures will or will not be covered and what percentage of the dentists fee they will cover. Every plan is different. Contact your company representative to discuss all your benefits that you are paying for.

In brief: Medical vs. Dental

With medical insurance, only a small percent of those covered use it.
With dental insurance, most patients use some of it each year. The formulas used to calculate the cost of these coverages are very different and is referred to as underwriting, which has to figure out what the plan will cost to pay the provider, and pay the insurance company a profit as well as its administrative costs.
