What does a dental plan cover?
All three options cover four main types of dental expenses:
- Preventive and diagnostic care: routine exams and cleanings, sealants, x-rays
- Basic treatment: pulling teeth, fillings, root canal therapy and some oral surgeries
- Major treatment: dentures, bridges and crowns, and some oral exams
- Orthodontial braces, including installation, removal and follow-up care
The DPPO plan options have a plan year deductible (September 1 - August 31).
The plan year deductible tells you how much each year you will be responsible for paying toward your covered dental expenses before the insurance company begins paying their share.
