DeltaDental.com provides search resources to locate network dental providers using specific criteria for the user's dental plan, including state, ZIP code, mileage radius and provider's name. If the insured has the Delta Dental PPO plan and is looking for a specific dentist, he should use the Delta Dental Premier option.
Not all dentists that accept Delta Dental participate in every plans network. They still accept all Delta Dental plans, but a higher out-of-pocket cost for an out of network enrollee may apply. When selecting a Delta Dental provider, the user needs to consider his specific needs, including the proximity of the provider and the provider's core clientele focus. Some specialize in providing dental services to children or the handicapped, and some offer bi-lingual services.
