About Safeguard1 Dental Insurance Plans

For 30 years, SafeGuard, part of the MetLife family of companies, has been a leader in the dental benefits industry. They provide a variety of dental care programs, currently serving over one million dental HMO members. SafeGuard does this with the support and partnership of more than 12,000 dental care practitioners in California, Texas and Florida.

Promoting overall health is a key part of SafeGuard's business philosophy. Founded in 1974, SafeGuard was one of the first companies to introduce the concept of dental HMO plans -- a concept that encourages good oral health by helping reduce the financial barrier to seeking dental care.

SafeGuard managed care plans are designed to maximize savings without compromising quality of care. Their plans promote preventive care and maintenance because they know that regular visits to the dentist now may help reduce the need for costly restorative work in the future.

The plans described on this site are designed for individuals and families who are looking for valuable dental benefits at competitive rates. Take a few minutes to review the information. We believe that you will be pleased at the benefits these SafeGuard plans provide.

Today, SafeGuard continues to promote the important connection of oral and vision care to overall health; they design dental and vision plans to offer members routine and preventive treatment at low to no Costco-payments. Their plans offer members real benefits and not just discounts. Over one million members in California, Texas and Florida enjoy the advantages of a SafeGuard plan, and now SafeGuard offers those advantages to you.
