Delta Dental Coverage Availability & Fees

Delta Dental offers three different types of dental benefits plans:

If you have Delta Dental PPO or Delta Dental Premier, you can see any licensed dentist you choose, but you’ll likely save some money when you visit a Delta Dental dentist in River Ridge. With DeltaCare USA, you must select a primary care dentist from the network.

The amount Delta Dental will pay for treatment varies depending on your plan and the dentist you visit. Under most Delta Dental PPO and Premier plans, the plan covers a certain percentage of the cost. Then the amount you owe depends on the dentist’s fees.

For instance, your costs may be lower when you visit Drs. deJong or Plaisance because they are in-network with Delta Dental. Some plans cover a certain dollar amount for each procedure using a table of allowance. You pay the difference between the allowance and your dentist’s accepted fee. Prepaid plans, like DeltaCare USA, have set copayments for each service, so you can calculate in advance how much you’ll owe the dentist.

Most Delta Dental insurance plans work within a benefit period that is typically a year, although not necessarily a calendar year. There are yearly maximums and limits that are usually applied to each person in your family. Our team will be glad to work with you to ensure that you reap the most from your benefits in a year and stay within your budget.
