Dental Plan Descriptions

Delta Dental PPO

Base plan for Twin Cities and surrounding counties

This is an affordable, network-only plan. The Delta Dental PPO network includes more than 1,700 participating dentists in 74 counties. With this plan you must visit a dentist participating in the Delta Dental PPO network to receive benefits. With the exception of out-of-area emergencies, benefits will be denied if you do not visit a Delta Dental PPO dentist. You may make your choice of dentists at the time of service.

Delta Dental Premier

Base plan for Greater MN

This is a flexible plan that offers access to the broad Delta Dental Premier network as well as the more cost-effective Delta Dental PPO network. Out-of-network benefits are also available. The Delta Dental Premier network is the largest dental network in the country with over 145,000 participating providers. The network has more than 3,100 participating dentists in 87 Minnesota counties and border communities. Visiting a dentist in either of the Delta Dental networks will help you make the most of your benefits and can result in out-of-pocket cost savings. You may make your choice of dentists at the time of service.

University Choice

University Choice is administered by Delta Dental and offers freedom to see any provider of your choice. There may be a payment difference between the allowed reimbursement and what the dentist charges for a particular service, which could result in greater out-of-pocket costs for you since the dentist may bill you for the balance. Visiting a dentist who participates in the Delta Dental PPO or Delta Dental Premier networks may result in lower out-of-pocket costs, in addition to waiving the $50 deductible under this program.
