Dental Insurance

The Town of Norton provides some dental coverage to retirees. The plans are available through 2 companies, Altus and DMS.  

Altus is only available to retirees who had coverage as an active employee and then chose to continue the coverage during retirement.  

The DMS Network plan is an HMO type plan with a list of dentists that can be utilized.  Currently, the DMS plan is the only option for retirees to enroll in during retirement.   For a listing of dentists in the network click here.
