Delta Dental is required to confirm at least once every three years that our network dentists are professionally qualified based on the standards of national, federal and state accrediting and regulatory agencies.

We will send you a letter and form approximately 90 to 180 days before the end of the three-year period. When you receive this notice from us, please:

  • Complete and return the re-credentialing form (including any required document copies) promptly. The process should take no longer than 60 days to complete.
  • Let us know right away if you received a letter for a dentist who is no longer at your practice location.

We are obligated to terminate your contract as a network dentist if your credential expires. You’ll be able to re-apply to join under the terms of our most current dentist agreement, as long as you meet the credentialing criteria. Your contract might not be the same as before, so don’t wait!

For questions, please contact Provider Concierge at 800-592-0156, Monday through Friday, 7 am to 5 pm PT. You can also email us at
