Value-Added Services for Network Dentists
At Delta Dental of South Dakota, we have a Professional Services team dedicated to network dentists. Our Professional Services team works closely with network dentists, and often solicits their feedback. We communicate with network dentists in a variety of ways, including office visits, newsletters and seminars to ensure we're not only meeting, but exceeding expectations.
The Professional Services team at Delta Dental of South Dakota is committed to developing opportunities that improve the membership value we offer dentists in our network. As part of this commitment, we offer several value-added services ranging from discounts on spore testing to Language Lines Translation Services to free electronic claims submission.
(Note: when you contact any of the vendors associated with the services being offered, please identify yourself as a Delta Dental of South Dakota participating dentist. These vendors will work directly with you. While we will work to maintain and add vendors, please be aware that we cannot guarantee the performance or continued participation of every vendor.)
