A healthy smile is linked to a healthy body. So you’ll want to see your dentist every six months. Just be sure to show your member ID card at every visit. In addition to regular dental benefits, you’re covered for $30 in over-the-counter (OTC) pharmacy products (PDF). You can use this to buy toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and more.
