This means there are limited out-of-pocket expenses when you or a family member visits one of our participating dentists. Over 250,000 union families are currently enjoying the benefits provided by the DDS Plans.
Who Provides the Dental Services?
We have over 350 qualified dentists and specialist in the tri-state area on our panel. This extensive network of professionals offers union members and their families a choice of location as well as dentists.
Each of our participating dentists has been screened to ensure the highest standards of dental care available. These dentists are not retail outlets or clinics; they are neighborhood dentists in private practice. Each dentist can provide you with the full range of modern dentistry and offers courteous treatment and personal care.How can I take advantage of these services?
