Why do 60 million enrollees trust their smiles to Delta Dental?

We Keep You Smiling®

Most of our enrollees stay with us year after year1, and it’s no wonder. Delta Dental sets the industry standard by doing whatever it takes and then some. We deliver:

  • Less out-of-pocket.
  • More dentists.
  • Simpler process.

Less Out-of-Pocket

The Delta Dental Difference® saves clients and enrollees billions of dollars a year.2 Because Delta Dental dentists agree to our determination of fees, clients enjoy extensive cost controls, and enrollees pay less out-of-pocket.

More Dentists

Four out of five dentists nationwide are contracted Delta Dental dentists, giving enrollees convenient access and quality assurance through the nation’s largest dentist network.

Simpler Process

Our dental plans are easy to use. No ID card is required to receive services and there are no claim forms to file – Delta Dental dentists do that for you. And because we pay Delta Dental dentists directly, you are responsible only for your share of payment.

Access to Quality Dental Care

We offer a variety of dental benefit plans through our Commercial Programs division to individuals and businesses large and small. We support military retirees, veterans and federal employees through our Federal Government Programs division and administer a variety of state, county and Medicare Advantage plans. All of our plans include cost management features, an emphasis on prevention and access to Delta Dental’s large, nationwide dentist networks.
