Dental Insurance Through Work

Flexible coverage for any budget

Dental care isn’t just about preventing cavities. It’s actually a vital part of your overall health. Having dental coverage helps ensure you and your family get the care you need at prices you can afford. At Aetna, we’ve created a range of dental benefits and insurance plans to fit a wide variety of needs and budgets. Our dental offerings include:

  • Large dental networks with tens of thousands of dental practice locations across the country
  • Smart online tools to help you manage your dental plan and learn about your dental health
  • Plan options to help you lower your dental costs

Find the plan that fits you best

We have teamed with a variety of companies both big and small to create dental plans that match the needs of employees like you. Each plan type has its own advantages, so you’re sure to find one you like.

Network only

This easy-to-use plan combines the advantages of a primary care dentist (PCD) with wide coverage and built-in cost savings.

Network option

Enjoy the flexibility of visiting any licensed dentist without a referral. You can also select from a range of deductibles and benefits levels.

Indemnity

This traditional fee-for-service plan gives you the freedom to visit any licensed dentist for covered services. Simply pay your dentist upfront and then get reimbursed.

Dental hybrid

With this design, you can switch back and forth between an indemnity plan and a Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plan that lets you visit any licensed dentist without a referral. That way you can sample the services of each and see which one you like best.

Affordable alternatives to dental insurance

If your employer doesn’t offer dental insurance, you can still save on dental services. With Aetna ValuePassSM, you can purchase dental services and enjoy discounts of 15% to 50% off the average retail cost. There’s no plan required, and you’ll still have access to the same great service and network of dental specialists. And if money’s really tight, you may qualify for Vital Savings by Aetna®, our membership-based service. Vital Savings by Aetna helps employees, retirees and their families save on dental care with one low annual fee.
