Share Article

Delta Dental of Tennessee is now offering the Delta Dental Individual Plan, dental coverage plans for individuals and families residing in Tennessee. After more than 35 years in the industry, Delta Dental's new Individual Plan is the first of its kind in company history.

We created this plan for working class citizens, as well as retirees, across Tennessee so they can better maintain their oral health and potentially keep their overall healthcare costs down.

    The Delta Dental Individual Plan offers an affordable alternative for individuals and families who otherwise do not have access to group-based dental insurance. Enrollees of the new plan will have access to the Delta Dental Premier Network. This network is the largest in the nation with more than 121,000 dentists in more than 174,000 office locations. The Individual Plan features superior benefits, including preventive, basic and major services starting at less than $30 per month. As an added value, members will also enjoy:

-- Vision care discounts up to 30 percent through EyeMed Vision Care(SM)

-- Hearing care discounts and free screenings from Beltone(TM)

-- Pharmacy discounts from CareMark(R)

-- Access to Passport Dental(SM), an international referral service for dental emergencies when traveling abroad

"Not everyone is fortunate to have access to employer-based group benefits such as dental insurance," says Phil Wenk, D.D.S., president and CEO of Delta Dental of Tennessee. "We created this plan for working class citizens, as well as retirees, across Tennessee so they can better maintain their oral health and potentially keep their overall healthcare costs down."

Since its inception, Delta Dental has provided dental benefits to Tennessee's leading employers. In addition to the Individual Plan, the company offers group benefits starting with only two employees.
