Dental

You can choose from two dental plans. They both cover the same services, but the Buy-Up Plan pays more each plan year for routine care and orthodontia. Both plans are administered by Delta Dental of New Jersey.

How it works

Both plans let you see any licensed dentist or specialist within or outside of the PPO network. However, if you choose a dentist outside the network, you will most likely pay more for services. Read about the plan details.
