Your assigned Contract Dentist maintains a 24-hour Emergency Services system seven days a week. The Contract Dentist will provide Emergency Services for covered dental procedures whenever possible. If you require Emergency Services and are 35 miles or more from your Contract Dentist's facility or you are unable to reach your Contract Dentist, you may seek treatment from a Dentist other than your assigned Contract Dentist. Delta Dental will reimburse you for the cost of the Emergency Services less any applicable Copayment.
Emergency dental care is limited to palliative treatment for the elimination of dental pain. Further treatment must be obtained from the assigned Contract Dentist.
