According to the American Dental Association, dental disease and discomfort are frequently overlooked reasons for employee absences and poor work performance.
Good oral health, achieved in part by regular dental check ups, can help keep employees at work and away from cavities, gingivitis and other serious infections. Smile … Anthem’s dental plans cover a wide range of important dental services, all while controlling costs.
Anthem offers both a Dental PPO and a Traditional plan for you to choose from.
Our employer-paid Dental Blue® PPO
offers the choice of two plan networks - Dental Blue 100 or Dental Blue 100/200/300. Premiums are based on both the network and the plan option selected. We also offer Dental Blue voluntary (employee-paid) options which give employers the opportunity to offer additional benefits like dental without increasing their costs. So, instead of reducing benefits to control costs, employers have more choices. Dental Blue contracted dentists are credentialed providers and participate in all three Dental Blue networks. Contact your Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield sales representative to learn more about our Dental Blue PPO options for large group
and small group
Anthem Dental Traditional plans do not feature a provider network, but instead give members the freedom to visit the dentists of their choice. With these plans, there are no networks or referrals to worry about.

Regardless of the plan you choose, Anthem believes in preventing health problems whenever possible. That's why we encourage you to take advantage of preventive and diagnostic services, such as cleanings, x-rays and oral evaluations.
