Dental Plan

The university offers a comprehensive dental plan for you and your family members through the Delta Dental Premier USA Plan. You will receive a higher level of coverage when you use a participating dentist from the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine Clinic or one of the 171,000 dentists in the Delta Dental Premier with National Coverage network.

Your Plan Covers

  • A calendar year maximum benefit of $1,500 per person.
  • Preventive and diagnostic services at 100% including one cleaning every six months if you use a Delta Dental dentist. If you get services at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, you can have up to three cleanings per calendar year.
  • Basic restorative (restorative, oral surgery, periodontics, endodontics, prosthetic maintenance, and emergency dental care) at 80%, after a deductible of $50 per individual, $100 per two-person, or $150 per family, when you use a Delta Dental dentist. If you get your dental care at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, these services will be covered at 90% with no deductible.
  • Major restorative (prosthodontics and major restorative) at 60%, after a deductible of $50 per individual plan, $100 per two-person, or $150 per family, when you use a Delta Dental dentist. If you get your dental care at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, these services will be covered at 80%, with the same deductibles as above.
  • Regardless of which dentist you use, orthodontic services are covered at 50% for any age, with a separate lifetime maximum of $1,000.

Rollover Maximum

You can save and accumulate part of your unused benefit dollars from a healthy year and use them for larger, more expensive procedures in the future. The Rollover Maximum brochure provides additional details and requirements to participate in this program.
