Need Dental Care in Another State? Okay, No Problem.

On vacation with a dental emergency? Or maybe you have an out-of-state child in college who needs to visit the dentist? No need to worry – your Dental Select benefits travel with you. Although we recommend getting all routine procedures taken care prior to leaving town, we understand that emergency situations happen or that family members may live elsewhere.

Since 2014, we’ve offered national coverage to members and covered family members. Our nationwide network includes more than 200,000 access points across the country, including all 50 states. So you can sleep better at night knowing dental care is available anytime, anywhere.

And to make traveling with benefits easier, here are a few tips to remember before you hit the road.

  1. Keep your member ID information on hand. Even better, download our app (iTunes, Google Play). That way you won’t need to carry information around in your wallet (note: dental offices will call and verify benefits on your behalf, but this will make locating your benefits faster and easier).
  2. For emergency care after hours, call the dentist’s office as soon as possible. Typically, dentists will have an emergency line where they can be reached for urgent care.
  3. To locate a dentist near your destination, use our dentist search for the fastest, most current information. Enter your address to see a list of dentists that are close by.
  4. As always, you can visit an out of network dentist if you’d like; however, we recommend staying in network to save the most money on out of pocket costs.
