Using your Coverage at the Dentist

Do you have a dental visit scheduled for 2015? Kudos on planning ahead!

Maybe your coverage changed with the New Year, or maybe you're seeing a new dentist. Either way, plan arriving a little early so you can fill out the office's paperwork and patient privacy forms.

Are you concerned about what you'll have to pay?

If you have Delta Dental coverage, choose one of our many participating dentists. This way, you won't have to worry about paying for the entire visit before you even see the dentist.

Delta Dental dentists will:

  • Submit claims directly to Delta Dental of Iowa. That means less paperwork for you!
  • Pay the dentist directly. That means you don't have to pay for the entire visit and wait for a reimbursement check.
  • Not balance bill you. What that means is that Delta Dental has negotiated lower dental fees with our network dentists. After your claim has been processed, there might be an amount on your bill that was higher than the negotiated fee. Not to worry – you don't have to pay that amount. We're just showing you how much you saved with your Delta Dental of Iowa coverage.
