This is the SSEU Local 371 Benefits Fund searchable directory of participating dentists and optical providers who provide services covered under the Welfare Fund's Dental Plan and Optical benefit at no out-of-pocket expense.
Participating dentists have agreed to provide covered dental procedures AT NO OUT-OF-POCKET EXPENSE to Fund members and their eligible dependents. The FUND does not recommend the services of any particular dentist, thus, for the convenience of covered members, the searchable database serves as an informational resource only.
Participating providers have been selected because they have agreed to accept the Welfare Fund's dental fee schedule as PAYMENT in FULL FOR COVERED SERVICES. If panel providers charge you or your eligible dependants for any COVERED SERVICES, please do not pay and contact the Fund Office immediately. The Fund requests that you report any irregularities including rudeness, unsanitary conditions, and difficulty in obtaining appointment at convenient hours to the Fund Office.
Choose the database you're inquiring about (dentist or optical). Enter your zip code followed by distance from your zip. Database provides you with dentists' specialty, phone number, and address with Google map.
Note: A dentist's participation is subject to change – therefore, when you call for your appointment, be sure to verify that the dentist is currently participating with the Fund. Do not forget to bring a claims form with you.
