Delta Dental is the University's dental carrier. They have an expansive network and will also waive deductibles as long as participants use a PPO dentist for ANY services rendered. Employees can choose to go to any dentist; however, the participating dentists in Delta Dental's network will be paid directly for services rendered. If an employee chooses to go out-of-network, the payment would be mailed directly to the employee and the employee would be responsible for paying the dentist. Interested in enrolling in the dental plan? Do so by the end of open enrollment will prevent you from having a waiting period for major and orthodontia services. After that time, there will be a waiting period of six months for those services.
