Count on our network numbers
At Delta Dental, we take great steps to ensure the validity, integrity and credibility of our network numbers – allowing us to give groups and enrollees a fair and accurate assessment of the access to dental care our network provides.
- We don’t lease our networks. Our local staff members foster relationships directly with dentists.
- When dentists retire, reduce their workloads to fewer office locations or otherwise change their network status, we adjust our network numbers accordingly.
- A trusted third-party resource compiles participating provider data and analyzes it objectively – scrubbing any duplicate entries within our network and other dental benefits carriers’ networks.
So how does your carrier count their network dentists?
If you’re covered by Delta Dental, you already know the answers. If you’re covered by someone else, it might be time to ask a few questions.
