Delta Dental of Kansas

In 1972, Delta Dental of Kansas (DDKS) was formed by an act of the Kansas legislature. The purpose was to provide a not-for-profit vehicle for providing professionally sponsored dental care programs to groups in Kansas. From those early years, Delta Dental of Kansas has grown to be the largest dental carrier in the state. As a member of the Delta Dental Plans Association, a national network of dental service corporations, we share in the role of being the largest dental carrier in the country. Delta Dental of Kansas is based in Wichita, KS, with a sales office in Leawood, KS.
