Retiree Group Dental Plan

The City of Savannah’s Dental Plan is available through MetLife. Your dental benefits are an important part of managing your health and your budget. We offer two plan options through MetLife, Basic and Plus. The MetLife Dental network is PDP Plus, which is a Preferred Provider Organization, wherein you choose a provider at the time of treatment. You do not have to pre-select a primary dentist nor do you need an ID card or referrals for specialty care. You can visit any licensed dentist, in or out of network. Keep in mind that you’ll pay less if you use an in-network dentist.

Visit Your Dentist Regularly

Regular preventive care visits to your dentist can help protect your overall health. Studies have linked gum disease to problems in other areas of the body. In fact, studies by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show there may be a link between oral infections and diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and preterm, low-weight births. Visit the Oral Health Library to get helpful tips for a healthy mouth and fewer trips to the dentist.
