Delta Dental saves clients and members hundreds of millions of dollars each year by continually finding better, more efficient ways to conduct business. Overall, we saved our members more than $5 billion in 2016 through our comprehensive networks and efficient business practices.


Four out of five dentists nationwide participate in one or more of the Delta Dental networks, giving Delta Dental the nation’s largest network of participating dentists.


Delta Dental of Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana deliver unmatched quality and expertise in our programs and services. We’re one of the few major health carriers in the world to hold ISO 9001 quality certification, which we first earned in 2002. Our customer service is hassle-free and 99 percent of all claims are processed within 10 business days.


We have an advantage that none of our competitors can match—the world’s most comprehensive collection of dental claims data, along with a staff of experts dedicated to analyzing and interpreting it. Through our Research and Data Institute, we transform this data into information that reduces our customers’ health care costs and improves our members’ oral health.


Delta Dental keeps clients and members happy—in 2016, we retained 94 percent of our business, and our most recent member satisfaction survey indicated that 97 percent of our members would recommend us to others.
