Jan. 21, 2015 – State Bar of Wisconsin members and their families are invited to join the State Bar’s new group dental plan with Delta Dental of Wisconsin. When services are provided by an in-network dentist, the plan offers 100 percent coverage for routine diagnostic and preventive care, and discounts of 50 to 80 percent for major, emergency, and orthodontic services.
Dental coverage is important
- Early detection of cavities, gum disease and filling repairs will prevent you from finding yourself facing root canals, gum surgery, and tooth extractions – much more expensive treatments.
- Oral health is linked directly to healthy living. Regular check-ups can lead to early detection of more serious health issues.
- Creating good habits for your children leads to good overall health. According to the Surgeon General, children miss 51 million school hours each year because of dental-related illnesses. Beginning good hygiene habits early in life can help improve health throughout the child’s lifetime.
The State Bar’s dental plan offers coverage for services from the nation’s largest dentist network with two network options:
The Delta Dental Premier network is the nation’s largest dentist network, and includes more than 90 percent of Wisconsin’s dentists and 81 percent of all dentists nationally. These dentists offer discounts on their services to members covered by the plans.
The Delta Dental PPO network offers members the lowest agreed-upon fees from dentists who are members of this network. While this network is smaller than the Delta Dental Premier network, the Delta Dental PPO network has more locations for members to access dental care than any other dental PPO network in Wisconsin.
