With MetLife Dental Insurance, you have two primary options – a PPO or HMO plan. Each type of coverage provides a way to receive the consistent and vital dental care you need, but the details of each differs slightly.

The MetLife PPO Plan

By being in-network with MetLife dental insurance, Dr. Fossum is able to offer services at pre-negotiated discounted rates, which translates into greater savings for you. Another convenience that you’ll enjoy is that we’ll submit the necessary paperwork on your behalf. Therefore, you can focus on what matters more: being as healthy as possible. Finally, with the MetLife PPO plan, your preventive care visits (for cleanings and checkups) will be 100% covered.

The MetLife HMO Plan

By being a Texas resident, you are also eligible for the MetLife HMO plan. With this option, rates are typically lower, and there is no paperwork to submit or deductible to meet. Therefore, it will be much easier to receive the care you need from your MetLife dentist in Temple!
