Dental Emergency During the COVID-19 Pandemic
The Benefit Trust Fund wants to ensure all Fund participants know Delta Dental will be accepting claims for services delivered through tele-dentistry for dental emergencies during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dental emergencies are potentially life-threatening conditions like uncontrolled bleeding, trauma to the face, or infections with facial or mouth swelling that could affect the airway and breathing. Urgent dental care focuses on mouth conditions that require immediate attention to relieve severe pain and/or risk of infection. Click here for the list of services considered dental emergencies.
If you are experiencing a dental emergency or an urgent dental problem, call your dentist immediately to determine the best course of action. If your dentist’s office is closed, or if you do not have a dentist, please visit your state government’s COVID-19 website to identify emergency care locations.
