Dental Coverage

What to Know

DuPont offers two dental plans through MetLife to keep you grinning, smirking, and smiling in style. Both plans cover preventive care — two teeth cleanings, two exams, and one set of bitewing X-rays — at 100% each year. The deductible is the same for both plans, but the plans differ in their maximum annual benefit and lifetime benefit.

About Your Dental Coverage

You can choose from two DuPont dental plans, which have a few differences:

  • The Standard option requires you to pay 50% in coinsurance after you meet your deductible. The maximum annual benefit is $1,250 per person. The Standard option does not come with orthodontia coverage.
  • The High option requires you to pay 25% in coinsurance after you meet your deductible. The maximum annual benefit is $2,000 per person. Orthodontia is available to children and adults, and the lifetime benefit for orthodontia is $2,000.

Both plans cover diagnostic and preventive care, including standard X-rays and two regular exams and cleanings per year, or four periodontal cleanings per year if you have a diagnosed periodontal condition.
