A brief history of the company

Delta Dental of New Jersey is a member of the national Delta Dental Plans Association which provides national dental coverage to more than 75 million people in more than 139,000 groups.

Constantly growing to serve the community better, Delta Dental of New Jersey proudly has 300 employees, including licensed dentists, as well as a Board of Trustees comprised of public members and licensed dentists along with Chairman Ronald Deblinger, D.M.D. and President and CEO Dennis G. Wilson.

In Connecticut and New Jersey, Delta Dental of Connecticut, Inc. writes dental coverage on a fully insured basis while Delta Dental of New Jersey administers self-funded dental benefit programs. Both branches offer a full line of managed care, approved fee for service, PPO, and HMO-type programs, as well as a dental access program, and individual dental plans.
