Creating a provider account just got easier with our  step-by-step video tutorial. If you haven't created an account on our online provider portal, you're missing out on easy access to review claims status, search for codes, view EOBs, and more. 

Discontinuation of Brighter Scheduling
At the end of December 2019, Delta Dental will no longer be partnering with Brighter as our provider appointment scheduler. At that time, the "schedule an appointment" feature from Brighter on and our mobile app will no longer be available.
According to Brighter, your practice will remain registered on the platform and you can continue to manage patient appointments with other dental insurance carriers that have a relationship with Brighter.
We have advised Delta Dental customers to make appointments directly with their providers moving forward. All currently scheduled appointments made via Brighter should remain in place.

The updated 2020 Provider Handbook will be available online starting January 1, 2020. Be sure to check back on our  website, click on PROVIDER Login, log in to your account, and click on the Documents tab for 2020 Provider Handbook.

Oral Health Volunteers 
The Colorado Mission of Mercy (COMOM) is a large-scale dental clinic that is held annually in a Colorado community that provides free dental services. Patients are evaluated and treated based on their most urgent dental needs, undergoing dental treatments such as cleanings, fillings, root canals, and extractions. Since its inception in 2007, COMOM has served approximately 15,000 patients.
Every year, team members from DDCO travel to the event location to participate. Nearly 1,500 patients were treated at this year's event in Glenwood Springs with the help of 1,200 volunteers from our provider community. We were so glad to work alongside all of you who were there!
