The health and safety of Delta Dental of South Dakota’s employees and those we serve is our top priority. To support public health efforts, we’re adjusting operations to reduce exposure risk and still provide the quality service you expect.
Our offices are closed to the general public, and as many staff as possible are working remotely. Only a minimum of employees are on site to perform essential functions that cannot be done remotely. You're welcome to contact us by phone or email or sign in to your account on our website.
DDSD maintains plans for continuity of business operations and we're prepared to continue serving our members, network dentists, clients, and brokers. We do not expect significant service disruption at this time, but ask your patience as we transition to remote work processes for our staff.
There will be significant impact to our Foundation's community-based programs as they provide dental care and classroom education to kids and other outreach at public events. Visits by our mobile clinic trucks and preventive care clinics are cancelled through May 1, with further schedule decisions to be made later using current public health guidance at that time.
We're continually assessing information from the CDC, the SD Dept. of Health, and other public health and oral health profession organizations to guide our response to the Coronavirus pandemic. Any updates will be provided and noted on this webpage.
We believe in the power of a smile. It can be comforting and inspiring. During these stressful times, we hope you’ll take a moment to share your smile with someone today. We’re all in this together, and we’re proud to be your partners in oral health.
