Regular visits to the dentist can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.  American dental plans provide free preventive care when using in-network providers.

In-Network Providers

Contracted dentists in the MetLife network have agreed to provide services to American team members at negotiated, lower rates. You may incur increased out-of-pocket costs if you see dentists outside of MetLife’s preferred network.
