Product Information

Delta Dental Premier Network

Delta Dental Premier is our largest fee-for-service national network and most widely purchased program in the country with about 117,000 participating dentists. In South Dakota, the Delta Dental Premier network includes approximately 95 percent of practicing dentists in South Dakota. Patients who enroll in a Premier Product have the freedom to visit any dentist they choose and will not pay more than the patient portion specified in their company's benefit plan.

DeltaCare Network

Delta Dental of South Dakota does not currently offer a DeltaCare network. DeltaCare is however, a national dental health maintenance organization (DHMO). DHMOs have the potential to contain and more importantly, reduce dental costs. In other states where DeltaCare networks are available, patients who sign up for DeltaCare are given a choice from within the network, in selecting a primary care dentist who provides comprehensive care. Primary care dentists are reimbursed through a combination of fixed monthly payments, lab fee supplements, specialty payments, and subscriber co-payments that are collected at the time of the patient's visit.
