Dental Blue Select

Our incentive PPO product offers the same flexibility as our traditional PPO plan with a higher level of benefits to members who choose to visit preferred providers.

Dental Blue Preventive

This plan design is available as part of a Dental Blue® or Dental Blue PPO® plan. The Dental Blue Preventive plan offers coverage for diagnostic and preventive benefits. It offers members access to dental services while enabling dental professionals to educate new patients about their complete oral health care needs.

Dental Blue Freedom

The largest selection of network dentists, plus the ability to see out-of-network dentists, gives members the most choice. They can visit any dentist in our Dental Blue and Dental Blue PPO networks and receive the most coverage. If they go out-of-network, they’re still covered, but they may have to pay higher out-of-pocket costs.
