Aetna is the brand name used for products and services provided by one or more of the Aetna group of subsidiary companies (Aetna). Dental benefits and dental insurance plans are underwritten by Aetna Dental Inc., Aetna Dental of California Inc., and Aetna Health Inc. and/or Aetna Life Insurance Company (Aetna). In Texas by Aetna Dental Inc. and in Virginia, the DMO plan is known as the Dental Network Only plan (DNO). DNO in Virginia is not an HMO. To receive maximum benefits, members must choose a participating primary care dentist to coordinate their care with network providers. Each insurer has sole responsibility for its own products.
