Using your dental benefits just got easier than ever! Delta Dental today released a new mobile app to help iOS and Android smartphone users manage their oral health and dental benefits with the touch of a finger.
“As the leaders in the industry, we want to be adaptable to the ever-changing needs of our subscribers,” said Steve Olson, president and CEO of Delta Dental Plans Association. “Delta Dental’s mobile app is a tool that will make having the best dental benefits in the U.S. more convenient than ever.”
Delta Dental’s new app gives subscribers secure access to their dental plan information to:
- View their benefits and eligibility, including coverage levels, maximums and deductibles.
- Check the status and details of their recent dental claims.
- Access or email their ID card.
The app also includes access to our national dentist search, allowing all users to find a dentist based upon their current location or by entering an address. Results can be filtered or sorted to help you find a dentist that suits your specific needs. Once you find the dentist you need, you can save them to your contacts, call to schedule an appointment or navigate directly to their office. There’s even a toothbrush timer that makes brushing fun by timing your recommended two minutes of brushing while you listen to music!
Delta Dental’s new, free app is available for download via the App Store and Google Play. Some features require subscriber login, but non-subscribers are welcome to utilize the dentist search and toothbrush timer without logging in. Throughout 2013 and beyond, Delta Dental plans to introduce new features and enhanced capabilities, evidence of our dedication to improving oral health and access to dental care for all.
