The value of Delta Dental

Experience. Local. Service.

We're the most experienced dental benefits company in South Dakota and a nonprofit organization with a passion to improve oral health in our communities.

Why Delta Dental of South Dakota? 

Choosing whom to trust with your oral health is an important decision. Why are we your best choice?


Established in 1963, we are the state's most experienced dental benefits company. Our relationships with members, groups and dentists can last decades, which means you can feel comfortable with us as your oral health care partner.


We specialize in oral health. For more than 55 years, protecting smiles and keeping them healthy has been our only focus. That means better dental plans, better service, and a larger network for our members' dental care.


More dentists choose to work with us than with any other dental benefits company. 96% of dentists in South Dakota participate in our network, giving members nearly unlimited choice of dentists.


Compared to other companies, we have fewer exclusions and limitations, and we cover pre-existing dental conditions, orthodontic cases in progress, and tooth colored fillings on more teeth. Dentists in our network have agreed to accept our fees as whole payment and will not bill the patient for any remaining difference with their charges.


With headquarters in Pierre, we employ more than 80 South Dakotans, and we're proud to provide local customer service from our South Dakota offices.

Giving back

We're a nonprofit company with a passion to improve oral health in South Dakota. Since 1997, we've invested more than $41 million in programs to improve the oral and overall health of people across the state. In fact, it's our mission.
