Oral health is an important component of overall health and well-being. Most dental problems are preventable. Proactive care, including regular check-ups and cleanings, is the key to maintaining good oral health. Problems can be diagnosed early and treated without extensive testing or elaborate and expensive procedures. Additionally, regular dental check-ups may surface other health issues. Macalester offers two dental insurance plan options through Delta Dental.

Macalester employees with a .5 FTE or higher are eligible for coverage.  Employees may add spouses, registered domestic partners, dependent children up to age 26, as well as other legal dependents.  All plan participants must have the same level of coverage, either the Preventive Plan or the Comprehensive Plan.
