Our Purpose

To continuously improve oral health

In 1957, Delta Dental's predecessor, Michigan Dental Service Corporation, was created with an important goal: to improve the oral health of the public by selling and administering high quality, cost-effective dental benefit programs.

Over the past four decades, we've successfully worked to achieve that goal. Along the way, we experienced some major changes:

  • We expanded into neighboring states through Delta Dental Plan of Ohio and Delta Dental Plan of Indiana and had nationwide impact through our business with national customers and the federal government.
  • We became the largest administration of dental benefits in the Midwest and one of largest in the country.
  • We grew to cover 3.2 million people throughout Michigan, Indiana and Ohio, in more than 3,400 groups.
  • We provided more than a half-billion dollars in benefits last year, a substantial investment in the dental health of our subscribers.

While these represent major changes in 40 years of doing business, some things haven't changed at Delta Dental. We still continually seek innovative ways to manage both costs and care. And most importantly, our commitment to improving oral health is still as strong as it was in 1957 - making a difference in the lives of millions.
