Dental Insurance

Dallas County Schools offers a DHMO Dental Plan through MetLife and a PDP Dental Plan through MetLife.

DHMO Dental Plan: Our network-based based product that emphasizes prevention and cost containment. These plans provide savings up to 75% off regular dental procedures. The plans do not cover services (except emergency care) received from out-of network dentists.

The DHMO Plan offers the quality dental care you expect as well as benefits for those unexpected procedures for which you could not have planned. Safeguard/MetLife provides you with coverage from the start, rather then having to fulfill waiting periods. With the DHMO Plan you won’t have any deductibles, claim forms and benefit maximums.

PDP Plan:  Under the PDP plans, you don not have to pre-select a primary dentist. When you want dental services, make your appointment with any licensed dentist. When you receive treatment from a MetLife PDP dentist, your cost will be reduced. Once services are performed, you or your dentist must file a claim form in order to receive reimbursement. Your claim will be paid based on your group’s schedule of benefits. The plan will pay a percentage of the eligible charges up to the plan’s annual limit for benefits. By using an in-network dentist, you will receive the maximum benefit of your plan. When you use an out-of-network dentist, your out of pocket cost will be typically greater than using an in-network dentist.
