COLORADO DENTAL SERVICES, INC. IS NOW OFFICIALLY DELTA DENTAL OF COLORADO
Delta Dental of Colorado is now our official name. As you may know and may have seen on various forms and documents, we previously were Colorado Dental Service, Inc. doing business as Delta Dental of Colorado.  We have restructured and merged Colorado Dental Service, Inc. into a new company legally named Delta Dental of Colorado (DDCO), which is what you will see moving forward on our official documentation . DDCO is now controlled by a holding company, Ensemble Innovation Ventures, which has as its nonprofit mission to advance health and well-being for all.
 
As a nonprofit, DDCO takes very seriously its mission to improve the oral health of the communities we serve, and we are committed to increasing awareness of the connection between oral health and overall health.

COVID-19 PREMIUM CREDITS
Delta Dental of Colorado has provided more than $13 million in billing credits  for all directly contracted insured and self-funded customers because of reduced claims activity for March and April from mandated COVID-19 provider office closures.
 
We know this reduction in premium may affect your commissions and that the COVID-19 pandemic is having a major impact on your business and your employees. Please know that we are exploring options to make up for reduced commissions due to the  credits  we've provided to customers in July and August. These options are not finalized yet, and we will share more information in the coming months.

If you have any questions, please contact a sales representative.
