Oral health is important for your overall health

Healthy teeth iconBecause many diseases can cause specific signs and symptoms in and around the mouth and jaw, dentists see clues that may point to critical health issues. As a result, increasing numbers of dentists are urging their patients to seek medical tests that seem unrelated to their dental checkups.

Did you know? More than 120 signs and symptoms of nondental disease can now be detected through a routine oral exam.1 Regular dental checkups are more important than ever, not only for oral health, but for overall health, too. Your retirement system's dental plan provides coverage for exams and cleanings twice per calendar year.

Choosing a dentist

With your retirement system’s dental plan, which is administered by Delta Dental, you are welcome to go to the dentist of your choice: a Delta Dental PPOSM dentist, a Delta Dental Premier® dentist or a nonparticipating dentist. However, your cost will likely be lowest when you go to a Delta Dental PPO dentist.

Delta Dental PPO dentists

Dentist chair iconYour dental plan is designed to offer the maximum benefit with the lowest out-of-pocket expense when you use Delta Dental PPO dentists. Delta Dental PPO dentists agree to accept Delta Dental’s PPO approved amount as payment in full for covered services. You are only responsible for your coinsurance.

Delta Dental Premier dentists

Many dentists that are not part of the Delta Dental PPO network may be in the Delta Dental Premier network. You may still save money when you use a Delta Dental Premier dentist, but you will be responsible for your coinsurance plus any additional costs for using a dentist outside the Delta Dental PPO network.

Nonparticipating dentists

Dentists that do not participate with Delta Dental do not have an agreement to accept Delta Dental’s approved amounts. Nonparticipating dentists will likely cost you the most money. When you use providers that do not participate with Delta Dental, you are responsible for paying your coinsurance plus any additional costs up to the dentist’s charge.
