Take Control of your dental care

You won’t pay a deductible for checkups or diagnostic and preventive services.

There is a $75 annual deductible, but no deductible for preventive services.

You will have coverage for basic services like routine fillings and extractions, and
coverage for major services include crowns, dentures and bridges.

There is no wait to receive preventive services with Dental Blue®. As soon as you obtain coverage, your checkups and cleanings are covered twice per benefit period.  So, you can protect your teeth by visiting the dentist every six months.
