Frequently Asked Questions


At Delta Dental, we strive to provide superior customer service. It is important to us to answer every inquiry quickly, professionally, and accurately.


I did not receive an Explanation of Benefits (EOB) statement for a recent dental office visit. How can I view/print my Explanation of Benefits (EOB) statements?

Delta Dental does not mail EOB statements for services covered at 100% and for which the patient owes nothing. These statements, however, are available to view and print on our secure Consumer Toolkit. Once you have logged into the Consumer Toolkit, click on Claim Info. Enter the date of service in the Start Date field, or enter a date range using Start Date and End Date. Click on the Claim Number for the EOB you wish to view. You also can click on the Procedure Code number for a definition of the service provided. To print EOB statements, click on the printer icon in your browser toolbar or select File then Print.

My current dentist is not a participating Delta Dental provider. Will Delta Dental pay anything on my claim?

Delta Dental has an extensive list of participating providers. Visiting a participating provider may help to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses. However if you choose to see a dentist who is not a participating provider with Delta Dental, you still may be eligible for partial reimbursement. Contact a customer service representative for more information.

How do I submit a claim for reimbursement?

Participating dentists will submit claims for you. If you choose to visit a nonparticipating dentist, you may need to file your own claims. Printable claim forms are available for download. Either you or your dentist may complete the form and attach a copy of your bill. Completed forms may be submitted via mail to: Delta Dental, PO Box 9085, Farmington Hills, MI 48333-9085.

What is my member ID number?

Your member ID number is often your Social Security number. Some groups use randomly assigned alternate ID numbers instead of Social Security numbers. If your group uses alternate ID numbers, your number will be printed on your ID card.
