Chang Dental Center would like to make you aware of some office policy changes effective January 1 2023. These changes are due both to the challenge of rising inflation, and to the ongoing shortage of dental professionals and staff. In order for us to continue to provide patients with the high-quality care we are committed to, the following changes are necessary.

In the past Chang Dental Center has been “in network” with many PPO dental plans. What will change is that, while we will still be accepting all PPO plans.

We will no longer be “in network” with BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD.

We will no longer be a PPO provider for DELTA DENTAL, however we will be a PREMIER provider with DELTA DENTAL.

We will temporarily be “out of network” with METDENTAL PDP and CIGNA PPO. As soon as we get approval from them, we will be “in network” with a third party PPO.

How will this affect you? Many PPO plans provide the SAME BENEFITS regardless of whether the dental provider is “in network” or “out of network,” but if your current insurance provider is BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD or DELTA DENTAL you should check with your insurer directly to know how your benefits will be affected, as that will vary among the numerous plans administered.

We at Chang Dental Center are both pleased and privileged that you have chosen us to provide for your oral health needs. We do value each and every one of you, and, as you know, we consistently strive to provide you with excellent oral health care. We look forward to providing you with outstanding care, and appreciate your understanding about this need for a policy change.
