Can I “mix and match” medical and dental coverages between my company’s plans and my spouse’s company’s plans?

(I’m a Canadian living in the US, and am unsure of some of the rules around things like this.)

I left my previous job a month ago, and needed to bridge my medical and dental coverage before my next job started. For this month, I went onto my wife’s Medical and Dental plans that are offered through her company. Her company’s plans are excellent. Starting next month, I can sign up for Medical and Dental coverage through my company.

After running some numbers, I determined that the optimum scenario would be (for my wife to be on her company’s plans and) for me to be on my company’s medical plans but her company’s dental plans

Is that allowed? Specifically:

Can I get Dental coverage on her plan even if I am not getting medical coverage via her company? Can I be on her company’s dental plans even if I have the option (but choose not) to get dental coverage via my own company?
