What is the difference between a Delta Dental dentist and a Delta Dental PPO dentist?

Three out of four dentists in the U.S. are Delta Dental dentists, and have an agreement with Delta Dental which means their fees are preapproved, they handle claims paperwork free of charge and they call Delta Dental directly with any inquiries. Because Delta Dental pays these dentists directly, you do not need to pay the entire bill and wait for reimbursement. Instead, you pay only the patient portion of the bill.

Delta Dental PPO dentists are a select group of Delta dentists who, in addition to the above conveniences, also charge lower fees. And, when you visit a Delta Dental PPO dentist, you maximize your benefits. There are approximately 50,000 Delta Dental PPO dental offices around the U.S.
