Janashakthi Insu-rance PLC has entered in to an agreement with India’s multi-specialty dental clinic and orthodontic centre, Dentavista Healthcare Private Limited to launch a unique, one of its kind dental insurance scheme. The scheme Denta Shakthi, allows customers routine treatments such as scaling and root canals plus specific orthodontic and implantology treatment of dental implants, gum surgery, crown and bridge and even removable appliances for children based on the dental cover and premium structure.
Doubling up as dental tourism, customers could avail themselves of a holiday in Chennai, while attending to their dental and oral care needs. Janashakthi Insurance’s Managing Director Prakash Schaffter signed the agreement with Denta Vista’s Chairman Dr. Ganapathy at a simple ceremony held at the Janashakthi head office premises.
Health insurance policies by and large do not cover dental insurance unless it requires hospitalisation. Many insurance policies completely rule out any or all dental or oral treatments. Growing awareness for dental care among customers is what prompted Janashakthi to launch Denta Shakthi. “We are pleased to team up with such a well-established dental healthcare practice as Denta Vista for our Denta Shakthi Insurance policy,” said Schaffter. “We understand that dental treatment can be expensive and we are responding to a growing consumer need, particularly in orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry,” he revealed.
Denta Vista too has a unique offering in terms of their service. “The difference between what you pay as insurance premium, and treatment of dental ailments is substantial,” said Dr. Ganapathy, adding, “This could be the means of providing yourself a holiday in South India, while getting your dental treatment attended to by our team of expert dentists” he counselled.
Janashakthi is one of the most profitable and stable insurers in Sri Lanka with the highest stated capital of Rs. 1.49 billion among quoted insurance companies, and a strong track record of claims payments that now top Rs 20 billion. Spending over 30 million per annum on human capital, it aspires to be simply the best at what it does. As part of its pledge to offer the fairest and greatest value in risk mitigation to its customers, it has an exceptional track record of market delivery and pro-people-market innovation.
The Company has served the nation for 17 years, and continues to blaze a trail in Sri Lanka’s insurance sector. The Company offers life and general insurance products and services in Sri Lanka, and provides life, health, vehicle, household, travel, and retirement insurance to individuals. Janashakthi Insurance PLC also offers fire, marine, motor, engineering, employee protection, and other related insurance for corporate customers, in addition to other miscellaneous insurance policies such as burglary, public liability, professional indemnity, product liability, fidelity guarantee, and cash in transit insurance.
