Defining Delta Dental: We’re Not a Dentist’s Office
“Can I schedule an appointment?”
“You’re a dentist’s office, right?”
“Where are you located?”
We’ve heard it all before. Not everyone knows what Delta Dental does or how we commit ourselves to your oral and overall health. But we hope to change that!
So what is Delta Dental? Here’s what you need to know:
• We Sell Dental Benefits
In 1954, a group of dentists met to discuss how to better improve the oral health of the communities they served. They became the first organization to specialize in dental coverage, serving members in California, Oregon and Washington. In 1966, the group expanded its coverage and formed the Delta Dental Plans Association (DDPA).
• There Are 39 Delta Dental Companies
In other words, Delta Dental of Arkansas is not just “Delta Dental” — we’re our own company! DDPA is comprised of 39 independent member companies, serving all 50 states, Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico. Together we serve over 59.5 million people from 93,000 member groups.
