Summary of Benefits - Traditional

Regular professional dental care is important to maintaining healthy teeth and gums. With rising dental fees, it can also be quite expensive. Your selection of the Traditional Dental Program will provide professional dental care while helping you control dental expenses.

With the Traditional Program, you have two options when seeking dental treatment. You may visit a dentist of your choice within the traditional network at 100% / 90% / 50% benefit levels. Or, you may visit any dentist out of the Traditional network at 100% / 80% / 50% benefits levels.

There is an annual benefit maximum of $1,500. If you choose a dentist out of network, there is also a $50 annual deductible for basic and major services. The program also includes a $1,500 lifetime orthodontic benefit. See your schedule of benefits for more details. In order to receive benefits, a claim must be filed with CompBenefits. If you have questions concerning claims or coverage, you should contact CompBenefits at 1-800-407-5514 email us at

After you enroll in the Traditional program, you will receive an identification card, with a maximum of two cards per family. Your member number will be printed on the front of the card with a toll-free hotline on the reverse side. You can call the hotline from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. if you have any questions. 

The benefits under the Traditional program are arranged and provided by your employer. The role of CompBenefits is limited to providing only those administrative services Emory has contracted with CompBenefits to provide, including certain claim services and administration of network of contracted care providers. The program is not underwritten or insured by CompBenefits.

If you enroll in dental coverage, you must remain in the program selected for a period of 12 months.

The directory contains a list of the contracted general and specialty dentists. This network is offered through and administered by CompBenefits.
