Dental & Vision Plans
With the NYU Dental Plan, administered by MetLife, participants have the freedom of choice to visit any dentist, whether they are in or out of the MetLife Preferred Dentist Program (PDP) network.
With over 100,000 participating MetLife dentists in the network, and over 1,000 located in Manhattan, you and your family have a flexible array of options and locations. To learn if a dentist participates in the PDP network, or to locate a MetLife dentist, visit the MetLife website or call a MetLife representative at 800-942-0854.
