Maintaining our dental health is a large component in our overall health. While brushing and flossing may help us maintain our dental health, routine dental exams and cleanings are necessary to remove bacteria, plaque, and tartar and detect early signs of gum disease. In addition, regular dental visits may actually help reveal other health issues you may be unaware of.

You have the option to participate in the Dental plan(s) available through your Employer which may help in paying for many of those services & procedures performed by your Dentist. The dental insurance offered to eligible employees through your Employer is currently provided through Guardian

Please review the plan documents carefully for more details on the dental coverage available.  There are two plans to choose from- NAP and Value. To find a dentist in your area, please visit the Guardian website below.

NAP– Network Access Plan, You will receive the same reimbursements for in and out of network dentists.  Out of network is based on 90th UCR (usual, customary and reasonable) of dentist in your area.

VALUE–  You will receive a higher coinsurance level with this plan, which means less out of pocket.  Benefits are based on a discounted fee schedule agreed upon by our network dentists.
