Members and their eligible dependents are free to use the services of a dentist of their choice or a participating dentist.
Participating Dentist Program
The Fund has made arrangements with many local dentists who have agreed to accept the fees listed in this booklet as payment in full (unless otherwise noted in our fee schedule). Should you decide to use any of the participating dentists, no charges will be made for any of the dental services listed and payments will be made directly from the Fund to your dentist. Frequency limits and general exclusions remain the same no matter which dentist (participating or otherwise) you might choose.
A participating dentist may charge you for services not listed in this booklet and for services more frequently than allowed by the plan or if you exceed the annual or lifetime maximums.
Please keep the list of participating dentists in your Fund booklet. The list of provides the names, addresses and phone numbers of the dentists who are currently participating with the Fund’s dental plan. These dentists have agreed to provide covered dental procedures at no out-of-pocket expense (unless otherwise noted in our fee schedule) to Fund members and their eligible dependents. The list is provided as an informational service only, for the convenience of covered members and eligible dependents. The Fund does not recommend the services of any particular dentist. The participating providers have been selected because they have agreed to accept the Fund’s fee schedule as payment in full for services. If you or your eligible dependents are charged for any covered services by a participating provider, do not pay and contact the Fund Office immediately. The Fund requests that you report any irregularities including rudeness, unsanitary conditions and difficulty in obtaining appointments at convenient hours to the Fund Office. Dentists who board qualified in orthodontia, periodontia, endodontia or oral surgery are listed separately from general dentists. This list will be reviewed and updated from time to time by the Fund. Therefore, you should contact the Fund Office before going to a participating dentist to verify his/her status as same.
