KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Business Wire) -- It's official. Assurant Employee Benefits offers the nation's largest dental PPO network for the second consecutive year. The Assurant Dental Network is the largest PPO network with more than 100,000 unique dentists, according to Ignition Group's September 2013 Netminder report.

Assurant Employee Benefits' dental network provides members with an expanded selection of in-network dentists that can help lower claim costs which helps to reduce out-of- pocket expenses and improve customer satisfaction.
