The Hess Dental Plan is administered by Delta Dental. The plan pays for a wide range of services, including preventive, restorative and orthodontic care at more than 115,000 participating dentists.
Prevention Is Key
One of the best ways to keep your teeth healthy is to maintain good habits and seek preventive care. To help you maintain good preventive care, the dental plan includes these features:
- Preventive care does not count toward the $2,000 annual maximum plan benefit. This means that only restorative, prosthodontic and orthodontic care are counted toward the annual maximum.
- Additional preventive care benefits are available for those with chronic medical conditions — such as diabetes or heart disease — through SmileWay Wellness Benefits. You must opt in to these optional benefits on deltadentalins.com to receive the additional services. Learn more about these benefits through SmileWay.
