Dental coverage

Designed to help with the cost of regular dental care as part of overall well-being, dental benefits offer coverage for a wide range of services, including preventive and diagnostic care, basic and major restorative care, and orthodontia. The Board partners with Aetna to administer this coverage.

How dental coverage works

PPO and/or DMO dental options may be available, depending on where you live. Both options cover preventive and diagnostic services, basic and major services, orthodontia, and more. When you use network providers, you save money and may not need to file claim forms.

How much you’ll pay for dental coverage

The costs for dental coverage are established each year. If required, you contribute to the cost of dental coverage through payroll deductions. The Dental Benefit Rate Checker lets you view and compare your available options and costs.

How to enroll in dental coverage

You and your eligible family members may enroll in dental coverage when you first become eligible and during annual enrollment in the fall.
