Delta Dental of Colorado is Colorado’s leading dental benefits company and the only one based in Colorado. Unlike most carriers, we focus on just one thing — dental insurance. We provide our one million members with the convenience of local customer service backed by a national network of dental providers. In addition, we are a non-profit company with a mission to improve oral health in Colorado. More than half of what we earn goes back to our local community.
Dental insurance is delivered through contracts with local dentists. The key is how your plan contracts with dentists to get you the lowest cost and highest quality of care. Delta Dental negotiates a low cost for you with our statewide network of more than 2,500 PPOTM dentists and an additional 3,450 Premier® dentists*, and we protect you from balance-billing (the difference between what the plan pays and what the dentist charges). Lower out-of-pocket costs for you mean that your dental benefits go further.
In contrast, some dental carriers offer only a limited discount from the standard dental office fee. This can shift the burden of expense to the patient for costly services such as root canals and crowns. And the discounts they offer may be restricted to a very narrow network of dentists.
Make sure your dental insurance offers you the lowest cost . . . with the most choice.
