CWRU Employee Dental Care Plans

In order to capitalize on the clinical strengths of the School of Dental Medicine, the School is pleased to offer a benefit option to CWRU employees under the University Benelect program. This dental benefits plan promotes and enhances oral health care through an integrated delivery system. It encompasses basic care through comprehensive care (including all the specialties of dental medicine).

Fee Schedule | Patient Bill of Rights

The School's objectives for offering this service are:

  • To emphasize and support the provision of quality oral health care.
  • To provide CASE Dental Care Plan enrollees with more choices for dental benefit coverage.
  • To effectively integrate dentistry into patient care systems and CASE employee health benefit through the Benelect Program.
  • To provide value added benefits such as implants, high grade esthetic ceramics and bleaching which are not available in most plans.
  • To ensure the quality of care through our Quality Assurance Program.

This Comprehensive Plan offers a full variety of services that is competitive with existing dental insurance plans.

In addition, the School of Dental Medicine is providing value-added services, such as implants, esthetic veneers and bleaching. These are services typically not covered on dental care plans.

The care will be provided by DMD students, residents, and faculty at the School of Dental Medicine, as listed below. Care will be available on request in the pre-doctoral program for those interested in additional out-of-pocket savings.

It's easy to sign up during Benelect open enrollment.
