Largest Dental Network in the Country

° Medical carriers aren't focused on their dental networks and often lease networks through a third party.

° Employees may have to change their dentist or pay more to see their preferred dentist

Greater Savings

° Delta Dental contracts directly with our dentists to establish fair fees. With greater access to a participating dentist, members are more likely to stay in-network and enjoy lower out-of-pocket costs.

Focused on Preventive Care, often covering 100% of preventive benefits

° Medical plans operate under a different model, focusing on treatment versus prevention.

High Delta Dental network utilization helps lower claims history and stabilizes rates.

° If the dental plan is bundled or embedded with medical, it may be subject to very volatile medical rate increases.

Count on the dental experts, Delta Dental, for the health of your clients' bottom line as well as that of their employees. We develop our benefit plans based on current dental science research designed to keep people their healthiest and most productive. Dental insurance is more than a 100/80/50/50 plan with cheap rates. While rates are a factor, service, commitment, network, expertise and long-term consequences should all be a part of the evaluation process when recommending a carrier to your clients.
