The plan features benefits for services both in and out-of-network. If you visit an in-network dentist, you will receive a larger annual maximum benefit. Highlights of the PPO plan include:

How to find a participating PPO dentist near you:

  1. Click here for the Delta Dental provider search.
  2. To start your search, you can either enter the location where you want to locate network dentists (search by city/state or ZIP code), or search for a particular dentist or practice by name and ZIP code. Use the "Select your Network" field to choose either the Delta Dental PPO or Delta Dental Premier network.
  3. You can further narrow your search by selecting a specialty (such as orthodontist), languages spoken and gender. Additional filters, like languages spoken and distance, can be used to narrow your search. Please note: the PPO Plus Premier Plan allows you to use any dentist you wish, but you will receive the greatest benefit by using a dentist who participates in the PPO network.
