Dental Benefits

The Town of Canton and Canton Public Schools encourage all of its employees to be covered by a dental insurance plan.  In this regard the Town and School Department offer eligible employees the following dental  plan options that will provide protection for themselves and their eligible dependents.

The employee with individual and family coverage pays an amount determined annually and effective July 1 of each year. The current employee monthly contribution is 25% of the insurance cost.  Employee deductions are withdrawn each pay period.  The employee pays for coverage one month in advance. The Town pays 75% of the monthly basic plan premium.  The difference in premiums from the basic plan to the enhanced plan is passed along to the employee/retiree.
  
If you enroll in the Delta Dental Enhanced benefit, there is a two year commitment to this plan.
 

Adult Children-Dental Enrollment and Coverage up to age 23
 


Employees' dependants are able to be covered under the Delta Dental Insurance Program until the age of 19.  If the dependants are students they can be covered until they turn 23 with the completion of a Student Affidavit Form, which is done annually.
