Welcome to the State of Illinois Group Dental Plans webpage hosted by your dental carrier, Delta Dental of Illinois.

With your dental benefit program, you are free to go to any licensed dentist. However, in many cases, you can reduce your out-of-pocket expenses by using a Delta Dental PPO or Delta Dental Premier network dentist. Here's how.

Your oral health and satisfaction are extremely important to us. We are committed to ensuring you and your covered dependents receive quality dental care and superior customer service. Please see below for links to resources and more information about your specific plan.
