The new, low-cost customized insurance program covers the cost of damage, loss, or theft of removable dental appliances like retainers, partials, dentures, night guards, TMJ splints, and sleep and sport appliances. The program fills the gap left by most dental insurance plans that do not cover replacement of lost or broken dental appliances.

"This program will revolutionize how this type of insurance is procured: through an easy and automated online system," said John DeFazio, Senior Vice President at Heffernan Insurance Brokers. "A custom policy can be procured directly from the point of purchase of a dental appliance from one's smart phone, tablet, or computer. It will result in significant premium saving as well as a better insurance policy."

Policies can be purchased with up to 10 retroactive days if the policy is purchased after the dental appliance. All terms are one year and cover an individual appliance. Insurance for the program is provided by Colony Specialty Insurance Company, rated "A" (Excellent) by A.M. Best.
