Dental Insurance in India

According to a report by the World Dental Federation, more than 3.9 million people suffer from Oral Health diseases across the world. When we talk about India, only 19% of its population visits the dentist twice a year for regular dental checkups due to the high costs involved in the same. So, we need Dental Insurance to get coverage against the costs incurred on dental procedures (either diagnostic or preventive) performed by medical professionals.

While you may not get a standalone or exclusive dental insurance policy, you can still choose health insurance plans that provide coverage against dental treatment as advised by a medical practitioner. Do remember that cosmetic surgeries don’t come under dental treatments. Some of the common procedures that come under dental insurance are tooth extractions, dentures, root canal procedures, filling of caries, etc.

If you want to protect your oral health while keeping your financial harmony intact, go through this page where we will talk about some of the top health insurance plans that provide dental insurance along with their benefits. Let’s start without any further delay.
