Got questions? We’ve got answers to help smooth the re-credentialing process.

How often are dentists re-credentialed?

Once every three years.

I’m in a group practice. Will one set of forms and documents satisfy the requirement for all of us?

No. Each dentist is re-credentialed individually.

What happens if I don’t respond?

We are obligated to terminate your contract as a network dentist, as mandated by numerous state and federal regulations and contractual requirements. You can apply to re-join under the terms of the current dentist agreement and you must meet all the credentialing criteria.

How can I request an extension or confirm that Delta Dental has received my submission?

Call the Credential Department toll-free at 888-858-5252, ext. 5325, during business hours.
