Your dental benefit package includes services such as:

Exams, X-rays and cleanings*

Sealants for members 15 and under*

Flouride treatments*

Deep cleaning for gum disease


Tooth removal


Root canals*

Partial and full dentures

Braces for members 20 and under*

Restrictions may apply and/or preapproval may be required. A star (*) in the benefit charts means a service may be covered beyond the limits listed for members under 21, if medically necessary and appropriate.

Finding a dentist

We partner with local dental plans so you can see the dentist with no cost to you. Your dental plan is listed on your Member ID card. They work with you to take care of your dental needs. Call them when you need dental care or have questions about oral health, before you seek emergency or urgent care.

Your dentist:

  • Is your first contact when you need dental care, except in a life-threatening emergency like uncontrollable bleeding.
  • Arranges for specialty dental care, if you need it.
  • Keeps your dental records and knows your oral health best, so they can offer the best advice even in an emergency.
