Inside the tool, you’ll be asked to respond to a few simple questions:
1. Coverage type Select the type of coverage you have or are considering (E.g., DHMO/dental HMO, PPO, etc.).
2. ZIP code Type in your ZIP code.
3. Network (or plan) name Choose the name of your network plan. (You’ll find the name of your network on your member ID card.)
Not a member yet? Simply choose one of the plans you are considering.
4. Search by name or specialty Enter the name of a dentist or the kind of specialist you need.
Then the system will provide a list of dentists near you, who are a part of your network plan. Their contact information will also appear.
Using in-network dentists matters
The dentists in our networks have agreed to charge lower fees to our members, so choosing in-network dentists saves you money. Plus, you can be sure that each dentist or specialist in our network is a qualified dental professional.
Using out-of-network dentists may mean higher deductibles, copays or coinsurance. It may also mean higher fees for services. So whenever possible, use an in-network dentist to get quality care for less.
