Answers to top questions

If your patients with Sun Life Dental coverage express concern about their dental coverage, let them know we have taken steps to help

Sun Life has lengthened payment grace periods, extended continuation for all benefit plans, including dental, and modified our rehire provisions to help those impacted by temporary layoff or furlough keep their coverage.  Individuals may also be eligible to COBRA their dental benefits.

We are here to help should your patients have questions. Please guide them to contact Sun Life’s Dental claims team at: 800-442-7742 

Are you providing services through teledentistry today? Our current environment has necessitated that more evaluative services temporarily be delivered in this manner. If so, it is important to know that Sun Life accepts teledentistry claims.  

Please continue to submit claims as you normally do. Sun Life allows the benefit for D0140 when performed with a D9995 (Synchronous Teledentistry). These evaluations are subject to the same policy provisions, copayments and frequencies as an office visit.
