You must choose a primary care dentist before you utilize the plan. Prior to your effective date, you will receive a notification prompting you to select a dentist. At that time, you will be able to select your provider online or by calling our Member Services Department. You can find a current list of dentists online at FederalDentalPlans.com/find-dentist. You can also call us toll-free at 855.836.6337 to request that a dentist list be mailed to you. After your effective date, simply call the dental office you selected and make an appointment. Except for out-of-area emergency care, you must receive treatment at the dental office you selected.
