may select one plan for their employees and must follow the participation requirements.
SDC is a network plan with over 6,000 participating dental offices and growing. Members are encouraged to seek care from a participating
dentist. You may access our directory of participating dentists on our website SDC’s website allows you to access group
applications and employee enrollment forms as well. You may also call us at (937) 438-0283 or (800) 762-3159.

This plan is hassle-free & paperless:
- No claim forms
- No waiting periods
-No balance billing
Renewals: Groups will automatically renew on their anniversary date, unless prior written notification is received. However, if the group elects to
change plan designs, please let us know by the 10th of the month prior to the renewal date so we can implement the change before their renewal.
Eligibility Information: Primary dependents will be covered to age 18 and full time students will be covered to age 23 or IRS          Dependents will
be covered to age 23*. Termination will be at the end of the birth month.
Vision Coverage: As a member of SDC, you automatically receive this value-added benefit for you and your eligible dependents. The
vision plan is administered through EyeMed Vision Care. The program provides discounts on examinations and materials at unlimited
frequencies. Discounts towards these products and services are offered through LensCrafters, Sears, Target, JCPenney, Pearl Vision
Centers, Optique locations worldwide, and at participating providers. Additionally, members will receive 15% savings towards either LASIK or
PRK laser vision correction through the U.S. Laser Network Centers.

plemental cosmetic rider that provides deep discounts for elective cosmetic services including teeth whitening, veneers, bonding, porcelain facings,
etc. Please consult SDC’s directory of dentists or SDC’s website for a listing of dentists who provide these services in your area.
Enrollment Form: When completing your enrollment form, please keep in mind you are required to stay on the plan for a full              contract period.

follows the rules established by state law for coordination of benefits to decide which plan pays first. When covering dependents, the birthday rule
is used --- the parent whose birthday comes first in the calendar year is considered the primary carrier. If a divorce has occurred the plan follows
divorce decree.

bility is to ask your dentist if the Pre-determination was done, approved and what is your copayment. A copy of the Predetermination will be
mailed to you and your dentist. Alternative Benefits are based on the least expensive, professionally    acceptable course of treatment. If the mem-
ber and his/her dentist decide on the more expensive treatment, the additional cost will be the member’s responsibility. All services are subject to
the policies and procedures of SDC.
