Why can't I sign in to the Delta Dental mobile app?

If you continue to have issues signing in, contact us at support@deltadental.com.

 

How are the Dental Care Cost Estimates calculated?

Delta Dental uses our internal data to calculate a fee or range of fees for each procedure within a three-digit ZIP code (the group of ZIP codes that have the same first three digits and are typically located nearby), both for dentists in our network and out of our network. Dentists in our network agree to accept discounted fees for various procedures, so the in-network estimates are typically lower than out-of-network estimates.

 

Does the Dental Care Cost Estimator account for my benefits plan in the estimate?

Currently, the Dental Care Cost Estimator only provides a range of costs that reflects what the dentists in the ZIP code provided charge for a procedure. Your benefits may pay a portion of that cost, and you may be required to pay a portion of the cost yourself. Cost estimates should not be viewed as a guarantee of coverage or cost. Please review the Terms of Use within the Dental Care Cost Estimator tool for more details.

 

Is my health information secure when accessing it through the app?

You must enter your username and password each time you access the secure portion of the app. No personal health information is ever stored on your device.
