Our Delta Dental Premier® and Delta Dental PPOSM1 plans plans allow you to visit any licensed dentist. Although you usually save money with a Delta Dental dentist, there may be reasons why you wish to visit a non-Delta Dental dentist. If you choose to visit a dentist outside of the Delta Dental network, you may have to submit claims yourself and pay the entire bill up front.
Of course, we encourage you to choose a Delta Dental dentist because you'll enjoy lower costs and the convenience of having your claim forms handled free of charge by the dental office.
If you are enrolled in DeltaCare® USA, our closed network dental plan, you must receive treatment from your selected primary care DeltaCare USA dentist.2 If you are enrolled in a DeltaCare USA plan and wish to change dentists, please call (800) 422-4234. Changes received by the 21st of the month are effective the first day of the following month. You can use our “Find a Dentist” directory tool to easily find a new dentist.
