Beam is a smarter dental insurance company. We work with employers, individuals, and families to deliver fundamentally better care.

We accomplish more by focusing on prevention. All Beam plans include our connected brush and automatic shipments of toothpaste and floss. Our accompanying app measures progress and rewards users for improving their dental health each day and week. Beam also makes it easy to find and use dental services with the tap of a finger.

The result is a streamlined, intuitive experience that is worth making the switch. We're Beam, and we're reimagining dental from the ground up.

We are proudly based in Columbus, Ohio. To learn more about Beam, please visit our website or checkout our iOS and Android apps.

Dental Insurance plans are underwritten by Renaissance Life & Health Insurance Company of America, Indianapolis, IN, and in New York by Renaissance Health Insurance Company of New York, NY. Both companies may be reached at P.O. Box 1596, Indianapolis, IN 46206.
