Full-Time Faculty Dental Benefits

Full-Time Faculty Dental

Dental Coverage

Under the terms of the 2011-2016 Collective Bargaining Agreement, the University shall provide dental coverage as a benefit to full-time members.  Adjunct members may, at their own cost, receive dental coverage at the group rate.

As in the past, three levels of coverage will be provided; single, “+ one”, and full family.  The faculty member can, at his or her discretion, move between a PPO plan, providing a $2,000 annual benefit per person after deductible, or a DMO providing an unlimited level of coverage on a percentage of cost scale.  The full explanation of benefits is provided below.


  •  The University will provide $180,000 in total premiums for the first year of the contract, with the amount provided increasing by 5% annually thereafter.
  • A year is defined as the academic year, from September 1 to August 31 annually.
  • The cost of single coverage is free for all enrolled full-time faculty members
  • The differential in cost between individual coverage and extended coverage (“+ one” or family) is free until such time as the pool of money provided for premium payments is exhausted.
  • If the pool of money for premium payments is depleted, the faculty member will pay for the extended coverage by pre-tax payroll deduction for the remainder of that year.
