Dental Benefit Management
Traditionally, dental benefit risk has been contained by a simple financial limit imposed on a family's annual dentistry treatments. This usually results in the benefit becoming a financial target and often leads to inappropriate or unnecessary treatment.

DENIS's dental management team has provided benefit risk management services for over 20 years, proving highly effective in:
