Dental Program

The Lubrizol Dental Plan is administered by MetLife. There are two options available under the plan to help you pay for a wide range of dental expenses —from cleanings to orthodontia. The two options are:

  • Comprehensive Option. You may receive care from any provider of your choice. However, if you receive care from a participant in MetLife’s nationwide network of dental providers, your out-of-pocket expenses may be lower because MetLife negotiates lower reimbursement rates with these providers. For a list of network providers, contact MetLife directly at 1-800-942-0854 or on the web at
  • Preventive Option. This option is a lower cost alternative that only covers limited preventive services with a $500 maximum annual benefit per person. Coverage for fillings, crowns, dentures, braces and emergency care is not included. In this option you can stretch your benefit maximum by using providers in MetLife’s nationwide network.

You may also choose to waive dental coverage.  If you waive coverage, you may re-enroll during the next annual enrollment period or during the year if you experience a qualified change in family status.
