The SBW Delta Dental plan offers coverage in two networks: the Delta Dental PPO network and the Delta Dental Premier network.
- Dentists who belong to the Delta Dental PPO network offer significant fee reduction to patients by offering the lowest agreed-upon fees. The Delta Dental network has more locations for members to access dental care than any other PPO network in Wisconsin.
- Dentists who belong to the Delta Dental Premier network also agree to discounts, but with a smaller savings than the PPO network above. More than 90% of Wisconsin’s dentists belong to the Delta Dental Premier network, and 81% nationally. The Delta Dental Premier network is the nation’s largest dentist network.
Why is it important to think about dental coverage?
- Early detection of cavities, gum disease and filling repairs will prevent you from finding yourself facing root canals, gum surgery, and tooth extractions—much more expensive treatments.
- Oral health is linked directly to healthy living. Regular check-ups sometimes identify symptoms of other health issues, which can lead to early detection.
- Creating good habits for your children leads to good overall health. According to the Surgeon General, children miss 51 million school hours each year because of dental-related illnesses. Beginning good hygiene habits, the healthier they may remain.
