JOIN OUR DOD PROGRAMS
Partner with United Concordia to treat active duty family members, National Guard and Reserve members and their families
Enrollees may receive dental care from any licensed dentist of their choice. However, members are encouraged to visit the offices of network dentists with the understanding that it will save them time, paperwork and money.
A licensed dentist who is not currently excluded, sanctioned or suspended by your licensing authority, is eligible to become a United Concordia network dentist. Network dentists agree to accept United Concordia's allowance as payment in full for covered services, collect patient cost shares and submit claims to United Concordia on behalf of United Concordia members. Please refer to the Network Dentist Agreement at the end of this section for a complete list of network dentist obligations.
