Proper dental care is necessary to maintain oral and overall health, and dental insurance offers access to affordable, quality dental care. Individual dental plans are an alternative solution for those not eligible for workplace dental benefits, including part-time, contract and other “gig economy” workers, as well as retirees.

Starmount’s new PPO plans are a direct response to the growing market demand for individual dental insurance with flexible levels of coverage, highly desirable benefits and plan options.

Key advantages of the new dental PPO plans include:

  • An easy online application process, personalized, web-based tools and mobile app for managing and accessing benefits
  • An option to add a fully-insured vision plan with coverage for an annual eye exam and eyeglasses or contact lenses
  • No waiting-period plan options and an increasing-maximum plan
  • Coverage for people ages 65 and older
  • Access to large, national dental and vision provider networks
  • Fast claims processing and customer service six days a week

Starmount’s technology and online tools improve transparency and accessibility of dental insurance for individual consumers and brokers by offering multiple plans on one direct-to-customer website, DentalForAll.com. The site simplifies dental benefits by:

  • Offering consumers a straightforward, online shopping experience that includes a plan comparison feature and an easy, three-step purchasing process
  • Providing brokers with customized agent links and personalized selling websites for client consultations and remote dental and vision sales

“Starmount is committed to adding value to the individual dental market with quality products and services that protect our customers’ health and financial wellbeing,” said Starmount President Deborah Sternberg. “The four new PPO plans offer consumers more choices to meet their health and budget needs, and allow us to expand our individual dental and vision business into new markets.”
