Dental Plans

Our dental plans offer access to care that fit your needs and help you achieve good oral health. Dental check-ups are more than just getting your teeth cleaned. Visiting the dentist regularly allows your dentist to monitor your total oral health and that can have a direct impact on your overall health. Our mouths are the entry point to the rest of our bodies. Good oral care, such as daily brushing and flossing, keep bacteria under control and prevent bacteria from spreading to other parts of our body. 

Read the attached flyer and watch this short video to learn about how you can strengthen your oral health, and overall health as a result.

Full-time associates are eligible to participate in the Cigna Dental Program and we know that selecting the right dental plan is an important decision.

Check either “Yes” or “No” for each question below. Yes No
I prefer a plan that tells me the exact dollar amount I will pay for each procedure, so I don’t have to calculate percentages.
I prefer a dental plan that has no dollar maximums, so I don’t have to worry about my benefits running out if I reach a certain amount.
I prefer a dental plan with no deductibles, so my benefits kick in right away, instead of waiting to reach a certain level of out-of-pocket expenses first.
I am willing to select a primary care network dentist even if means switching dentists.

I answered “yes” the most.

The DHMO** plan may be right for me because: › There are no dollar maximums. › There are no deductibles. › My benefits start right away with no waiting periods. › There are no claim forms to file. › I select a DHMO network general dentist to manage all of my dental health care needs who will refer me to any network specialists. (Prior authorization may be required for certain specialty care treatments.) Visit to see if your dentist is in the Cigna DHMO Network.

I answered “no” the most.

The DPPO plan (plan 1 or plan 2) may be right for me because: › I have the freedom to visit any licensed dentist or specialist. › I don’t need a referral to visit any specialist. › My dental plan will cover eligible dental expenses after I meet any applicable waiting periods and meet any deductibles. › My plan is based on coinsurance levels that determine the percentage of costs covered by the plan for different types of services.
