• You and your eligible dependents can enroll in one of two dental insurance plans. Beginning September 1, 2014 ERS will add a third dental offering called the State of Texas Dental Discount Plan. The State of Texas Dental Discount Plan is not dental insurance, but a discount program for dental services.

    You can only enroll in one of the dental offerings. Members and their dependents must enroll in the same dental plan. Signing up for a dental plan never requires proof of good health, called evidence of insurability.

    Enrolling in dental

    1. Determine whether you want to enroll in dental insurance or a dental discount plan.
    2. Search for your dentist to see if he or she is a part of the network for either plan.
    3. Ask your dentist to give you a cost estimate for any dental procedures you need and compare costs in the plans.
