Dental Plans

The City of Scottsdale offers you a choice between two types of dental plans.

HMO Dental Plan - Assurant

The HMO Dental Plan - Assurant provides services by a pre-selected general dentist. Services are listed with co-payments on a benefit schedule. Specialist services are available through your primary care dentist or a plan specialist with co-payments or discounts off the plan specialists' normal retail charges depending upon the procedure.

PPO Dental Plan - Delta Dental of Arizona

The PPO Dental Plan is a self-insured dental program with a preferred provider network. The preferred provider network is Delta Dental of Arizona - Premier Plan. Under this plan, you have the freedom to select the dentist of your choice.  But if you utilize a preferred provider dentist, you will receive a higher level of coverage.
