Why Should I See an In-Network Dentist?

95% of dentists in Kansas, and 80% of dentists nationwide are part of the Delta Dental network, making it easy for you to find an in-network dentist wherever you are.

Here are some of the top reasons why it’s smart to stay in-network.

In-network dentists save you money.

Most Delta Dental of Kansas plans allow you to see any licensed dentist. However, you will almost always save money if they choose a dentist in your plan’s network. Dentists in our network agree to our predetermined fees for services, which are usually discounted from typical charges. That’s one reason why in-network dentist appointments can cost less!

It’s important to understand how your out-of-pocket savings may vary depending on the dentist you see. Review your plan details to see if your plan has different co-insurance levels for PPO and/or Premier, and out-of-network dentists. Depending on your plan, you may receive higher coinsurance levels when staying in your plan’s network. Review your plan details by logging in to your member account.

Less hassle for you.

When you get dental care done by an in-network dentist, you don’t have to worry about submitting claims or waiting for reimbursements. Your in-network dentist submits your claim directly to us, and we pay your in-network dentist directly.

In-network dentists are credentialed.

We have high standards for your health and safety. All of our in-network dentists meet specific professionally-required credentialing standards. We only work with providers who regularly ensure they are maintaining these standards.

Finding an in-network dentist is easy.

Find an in-network dentist, or find out if your current dentist is in-network by using our dentist search. You can access our dentist search here, or by using the Delta Dental mobile app. You can search for a dentist by name, location, specialty, language spoken and more.
