Good news for kids under DeltaCare® USA plans: Delta Dental has increased the age limit for pediatric dental coverage through the age of 14 (up from 7). That means more kids can keep seeing the dentist they are most comfortable with for a longer period of time.
Children through the age of 14 are now covered for pediatric dental visits under all DeltaCare USA plans. This change allows groups to offer more competitive benefits to their members, which can increase employee satisfaction. And it allows you to pitch even stronger plans that show Delta Dental's commitment to excellence.
It’s important for children to get dental care early in life, and that care must continue during the development of their baby teeth and permanent teeth. Most kids lose their last baby tooth around the age of 12, so having a continuity of care throughout a child’s development can make them feel comfortable at the dentist while maintaining that important relationship with a single provider.
DeltaCare USA offers affordable coverage for a child’s visits to the dentist. Benefits include:
There are no waiting periods, no claims to file and no deductibles. Parents know ahead of time what their copayment will be for a covered service.
