Any deductible or plan limits associated with your plan are tracked on an academic-year basis.

The Point-of-Service plan provides the most cost-effective benefits for diagnostic and preventive services and a schedule of treatment for restorative work if the Delta Dental PPO network is used. Services provided by non-PPO dentists are reimbursed at a reduced percentage.

The Standard plan provides benefits for diagnostic and preventive services and basic treatments ONLY when a Delta Dental PPO network dentist provides the care.


Dental plans are administered on the academic year and premiums are taken from your pay before taxes are calculated.

You may view and enroll in dental benefits along with other voluntary benefits through the Benefitfocus enrollment portal.
