Delta Dental Plan Overview

With nearly 80% of practicing dentists in Delta’s networks, there is a good chance you already see a Delta Dental provider. To maximize your savings, it is important to be aware of the Delta network the dentist belongs to. Delta has three different networks of providers:

  1. Delta PPO
  2. Delta Premier
  3. Non-Delta dentists

While you can visit any licensed dentist and still receive a benefit, you will save the most by visiting a Delta PPO or Premier dentist.

Delta Provider Networks
NetworkExplanation
Delta PPOVisit a dentist in this network to maximize your savings. In general, you should expect to save about 30% on contracted services which will help reduce any out of pocket costs you may experience. PPO dentists have pre-negotiated their fees with Delta and have agreed not to balance bill Delta patients. 
Delta PremierYou will experience a smaller savings of 8-16% on contracted services by visiting a Premier dentist. Premier dentists have pre-negotiated their fees with Delta and have agreed not to balance bill Delta patients.
Non-Delta DentistsWhile you will still receive a benefit from Delta while seeing an out-of-network dentist, these dentists do not have pre-negotiated rates with Delta. In addition, an out-of-network dentist may balance bill you the remainder of the bill Delta does not pay.
Learn more about the tiers of Delta Providers and how that affects how much you will pay out of pocket for your dental services.
