State of Texas Dental Choice Plan (PPO)
Administered by Delta Dental
(888) 818-7925

Two networks to choose from:

      • Delta Dental PPO
        Dentists in this network typically charge less for covered services, and you will get the most savings.

Provider Finder

      • Delta Dental Premier
        Dentists in this network may charge more for covered services than dentists in the PPO network. Services are covered at the same coinsurance, but you typically won’t save as much with a Premier dentist as you would with a PPO dentist.
