Find a Delta Dentist network dentist

To find a Delta Dental Medicare Advantage PPO and Medicare Advantage Premier network dentist call 800.330.2732 (TTY 711), Mon. - Fri., 8 a.m. - 8 p.m., or go to their provider locater.

When you go to a participating dentist, they file your claim. You only have to pay your copayment and the cost of any non-covered services.

If you go to a non-participating dentist:

If out-of-network (non-participating) providers charge more for a service than what Delta Dental has agreed to pay, you will be responsible for the difference. You will likely pay less out-of-pocket by receiving treatment from an in-network (participating) dentist. If you choose to receive services from an out-of-network dentist, be sure to ask the dentist if they have opted out of Medicare. Delta Dental is unable to make payment for any services received from a provider that has opted out of Medicare.
