How can I find a dental benefit plan?

The NADP site has a link to the NADP Directory; use the button on the home page marked “Find a Dental Plan.”  This Directory provides a way to search by state and “individual” or “group” coverage for the carriers that offer dental benefits in your state. Since NADP members write more than 93% of all the dental benefits in the United States, this search will usually provide a list of 6 to12 companies that write coverage for individuals and many more for groups. Some of the companies offer only discount products or DHMO while others will offer DPPO or dental indemnity, so know the type of coverage you are looking for before you do your search.

Other web sites connect employers looking for group coverage to carriers:
