A bright smile takes more than just brushing and flossing, but paying for dental care for you and your family can get expensive. Dental insurance lowers the cost of dental care, from preventive care to extensive, costly and often unexpected expenses, you're covered. Guardian is here to help.
Poor oral health has been linked to conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. You can find information including articles on how your oral health care impacts your overall health, tools to access risks to your oral health and more here. More info
With Guardian, any plan you choose will provide you with basic coverage and access to our large network. Our Plans
Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), insurers must provide coverage for 10 essential health benefits (EHBs). One of these benefits is for pediatric dental care for children under age 19, which is a comprehensive set of dental services, including diagnostic and preventative benefits such as oral examinations, x-rays, topical fluoride, and dental sealants, restorative services such as fillings, as well as coverage for major service such as oral surgery and crowns. All of Guardian's plans include the pediatric essential health benefits, and these services are covered without annual or lifetime limits when care is received in-network. And, in some states, coverage for medically necessary orthodontia may be included as well. Learn more

Important Information About Guardian® dental HMO plans.
These plans provide Pre-Paid dental benefits through a network of participating general dentists and specialty care dentists. All covered services must be provided by the member’s Primary Care Dentist. Specialty care services are covered only when referred by the member’s Primary Care Dentist and approved in advance by the named underwriting company. Only those services listed in the plan are covered. Certain services are subject to annual or other periodic limitations. Where orthodontic benefits are specifically included, these plans provide for one course of comprehensive treatment per lifetime, per member. These plans do not provide orthodontic benefits if comprehensive orthodontic treatment or retention is in progress as of the member’s effective date under the plan. The services, exclusions and limitations listed here do not constitute a contract and are a summary only.
