You do not need to enroll in Uniform Dental or Preventive Dental to enroll in a supplemental dental plan.

Note: ID cards for Uniform Dental are separate from the ID cards for Supplemental Dental. If you enroll in both, bring both ID cards with you to your appointment.

Provider Network

Delta Dental has two provider networks available: Delta Dental PPO and Delta Dental Premier. Members must choose a dentist within one of Delta Dental’s networks. Delta Dental’s PPO network provides the deepest discounts for services. There are no dental benefits for out-of-network providers.
