In-network Benefits

Benefits of choosing an in-network dentist

  • Lower out-of-pocket expenses.
  • No paperwork! Your dentist will fill out all forms and file claims for you.
    • You will never have to complete or file the paperwork yourself.
    • You will never be charged an extra fee for processing the forms.
  • No extra charges! You’re responsible only for your deductible and/or copayment, if applicable.
    • You will never have to pay charges that exceed our allowed fees for covered services (also known as balance billing.)
    • You will never have to pay full price for a dental visit and then wait for reimbursement.

Finding the right dentist for your plan

With many of our plans you can go to any licensed dentist, but you may lower your out-of-pocket costs if you choose a dentist who participates in the Delta Dental PPO networks. Dentists in our network agree to accept Delta Dental fees as full payment for covered services, while nonparticipating dentists do not have an agreement with Delta Dental and may charge more than our fees. If you go to a nonparticipating dentist, you will be responsible for the difference between Delta Dental’s allowed fee and the amount charged by the dentist.

To locate a participating dentist in your area, simply visit Find a Dentist. If you do not know what network your plan covers, log in to the Consumer Toolkit or call us toll-free at (800) 524-0149.

Always ask your dentist if he or she is a participating dentist with your Delta Dental plan before receiving any dental services.
