Understanding PPO dental plan benefits
You can choose from many different kinds of dental plans, but Preferred Provider Organizations (PPO) are by far the most popular. In fact, more than 80% of dental insurance plans are PPOs.1
So why have PPO plans emerged as the popular and smart choice? Because PPO plans offer clear advantages as suggested below.
A PPO plan can save you more money.
Insurance companies develop a network of dentists who agree to charge you fees that are lower than their usual rates. Those
discounts are the deepest when you visit a PPO network dentist.
You have options and flexibility.
A PPO plan will offer you a variety of choices from a network of dentists. You also have the flexibility to visit any licensed dentist – even out-of-network dentists— but you can maximize your savings and benefits by visiting a PPO network dentist who has agreed to lower fees. In other words, your out-of-pocket expense is much less.
There are more advantages.
In addition to better health, greater savings and more choice and flexibility, with the Delta
Dental PPOTM network:
Patients can save more than 35% on average by visiting a Delta Dental PPO network dentist compared to the fee the dentist would typically submit for a claim.5
You know you will receive quality care because all dentists in our network are credentialed to make certain they meet or exceed our requirements.
Claims payments go directly to in-network dentists, so you don’t have to pay the full cost upfront at the dental office and then wait to be reimbursed by the insurance company later.
You won’t be balance billed by visiting a dentist in the Delta Dental PPO network. No balance billing means a dentist cannot bill for the difference between their regular fees and the amount they’ve agreed to charge patients in the network.
Delta Dental’s PPO network is one of the nation’s largest, with more than 112,000 dentists participating in over 278,000 locations nationwide.6 This not only gives you a great selection of qualified dentists to choose from, but increases the likelihood that your dentist already participates in the network. You can easily find a dentist now in the Delta Dental networks.

Choosing a dental insurance company
What’s the value of dental insurance?
We care about protecting more than your teeth
Guardian makes it easy for members to access quality preventive dental care because of its clear connection to overall health, as well as the savings gained by avoiding major services and dental procedures down the line. With good oral care, people are 67% less likely to have heart disease, 50% less likely to have osteoporosis, and 29% less likely to have diabetes8.
How dental insurance works
Compared to medical insurance, it can be easier to understand dental insurance policies. Most policies are straightforward and specific regarding what procedures are covered and exactly how much you pay out-of-pocket.
You can typically save on costs if you use an insurer’s network of dentists. Guardian has more than 120,000 providers in our nationwide network. That means if you already have a dentist you love, they likely take one of our policies.

Managed Care/Provider Network
Our managed care dental products help to balance cost and member choice by tailoring a plan that fulfills your specific needs.
Wouldn’t it be great if members were rewarded for practicing good oral wellness? With Dental Reward’s increasing annual maximum feature, they are rewarded. Members who don’t use much of their annual max can qualify to carry some of those unused dollars forward for use in future years. That way, the money is there when they need it most.
We offer orthodontic benefits for children and adults. Add this feature to enhance your benefit package, and unleash the power of a great smile. Beautiful smiles and happy faces lead to achieving great things at work and in life.

These voluntary plans offer members two dental procedure reimbursement levels with two corresponding premiums (high or low). All in one policy. Now that’s flexible.
Consider funding a core benefit with the option of buying up to a richer benefit. This way, employers can offer a base benefit, and plan members who want more can have it.
Dual Choice Option
We’ve been in the business of providing quality group benefits long enough to know that people have different needs. Our dual option plans give employers the freedom to offer members one plan with two choices. That way, they can choose the right coverage at the right price.
$ensible Choice bases reimbursement on the dollar amount of your plan member's expense for dental care -- not on benefit types or procedure categories. And, depending on your needs and goals, ASO and qualifying fully insured groups can choose whether to include a set of smart cost management tools that help keep benefit costs predictable and rates stable.
An employer doesn’t need a lot of money to provide competitive benefits. With our voluntary plans, they can offer cost-effective benefits while members choose individually whether to participate and cover the costs.
ASO (Administrative Services Only)
We’re here to help make your life easier. We provide simplicity for your self-funded benefit plans. As members’ claims come to us for processing, we pay the claims and then notify the employer of the cost each week. We’ve got you covered, one claim at a time.
Small Group Trust
We employ small group managers specifically for fulfilling the needs of smaller organizations. Wellness benefits such as dental and vision are not just for big corporations. Local family businesses and smaller groups need them too, and we’re here to help.
