IMPORTANT UPDATES 
Provider Directory Update
Our provider directories and online search tool are the most important tools available to our more than 1.4 million members when choosing a provider. We want to help our members, your potential patients, find you quickly and easily through the search tool and directories, which are available on our website at deltadentalco.com and Delta Dental Plan Association's website at deltadental.com.

We are working on updating our provider directory with the most up-to-date information on the providers who are currently practicing at your location, and we need your help! Please click here to download the short form  that needs to be completed with the billing Tax ID Number (TIN) and names of all the providers who are currently practicing at your location.

Once completed, please email a copy of the form to profservices677@ddpco.com or fax to 303-741-2230 by August 31, 2019.
