The City offers dental insurance through Delta Dental of Wisconsin and pays 100% of the premium for full-time employees. Permanent part-time employees who work 20 or more hours per week are also eligible for this benefit at a prorated premium. Delta Dental covers 100% of the cost of a routine exam and cleaning every 6 months. Should you need dental services beyond your routine exams and cleanings (i.e. fillings, crowns, root canals, etc.), Delta Dental will pay for a percentage of the services up to a maximum benefit of $1,500 per person per year. See the Delta Dental Handbook and Benefits Summary for more details.
Delta also offers an orthodontic benefit of $1,000 for each covered dependent child to the age of 19.
You can see the dental provider of your choice. However, if your provider is contracted with Delta Dental as a PPO provider or Premier provider, Delta will pay for a greater percentage of your services. To see your dentist's provider status, or to choose a dentist, visit Delta Dental's website at https://www.deltadentalwi.com/s/find-a-provider.
