Our Networks

Winning with the largest dental and vision networks

Delta Dental PPO Plus Premier™ gives members access to over 150,000 unique participating dentists! That’s more than four out of five dentists nationwide — and 86% participate in Connecticut!1

Network Discounts

This unique dual network means greater in-network savings for members through our network discounts. In Connecticut, our average Delta Dental PPO discount is 33.1%, and our average Premier discount is 27.9%. We have the best net effective discount.2

Our Utilization Rates Outperform the Competition

Network utilization indicates how often members choose to visit in-network dentists. More in-network visits mean more savings, fewer balance billing issues, and an overall better member experience.

We Count Dentists, Not Access Points

Size matters; every dentist in our network means an actual dentist, not a building or location. We recruit participating dentists, work hard to keep our networks strong, and regularly validate our networks to make sure dentists haven’t moved or retired. And, unlike other carriers who build their networks from lease arrangements, we own 100% of our networks. That provides our members with the network stability they rely on year after year, and helps them stay in network.

Delta Dental PPOTM A network with deeper discounts
Delta Dental Premier® A network with broader access and impressive discounts
DeltaCare® USA A managed DHMO network
