Plan information

DeltaCare USA plans require you to visit your chosen DeltaCare USA primary care dentist to receive coverage. If you need to see a specialist, your DeltaCare USA dentist will refer you.

Delta Dental provides you resources at your fingertips.  You can create an online account or download the Delta Dental app to check your plan details and eligibility, view your member ID card and find an in network dentist.

Regular visits to your dentist for exams and cleanings help to keep your smile healthy, catch small issues before they become big problems and avoid costly procedures.

United Concordia Dental logo

With quality dental coverage, access to a large, national dentist network, exceptional customer service, convenient and secure online tools, United Concordia has the total dental benefits package.

United Concordia is committed to the oral health of our members. We have more than 50 years of dental experience and use that knowledge to design robust and flexible benefit programs. We’ve built national networks and have implemented routine verifications of dentists’ credentials and on-site inspections to ensure our members are receiving the highest quality dental care.

Plan information

Under the DPPO plan, members may seek services from dentists participating in the Advantage Plus Network or from non-participating dentists without the need to select a primary care dentist. You also do not need a referral to receive care from a specialty dentist, making it easy to get the oral care you need when you need it.

Not only will you have excellent access to participating dentists, but you can also get a discount on services not covered in your plan, such as teeth whitening (just look for the green SAVE icon in your search results when using our Find-a-Dentist online tool).

Tip: Since COVID-19 has many people working remotely, you and your family may be farther from your regular dentists. Don’t worry, it’s simple to find an in-network dentist closer to your current location. Just visit United Concordia website or call our US-based customer service at 1-888-MD-TEETH to find your dentist or a dentist near you.
