The Advantage Program (available only in New Jersey) is specifically designed for New Jersey employers who are cost conscious, but also are concerned about access for their employees. It offers a large network of participating Advantage dentists in New Jersey, plus an additional safety net that provides access to Delta Dental Premier® dentists. Advantage members also have the freedom to visit non-network dentists (although their out-of-pocket costs may be higher).

  • Cost-effective program for New Jersey employers and employees
  • Large New Jersey-based network, plus access to nationwide Delta Dental Premier network
  • Flexibility to choose any licensed dentist

Network Access

  • Members have access to the statewide Advantage Program network of participating dentists, one of the largest in New Jersey.
  • Members will likely save by visiting a dentist who is part of our Advantage network. However, if a member sees a Delta Dental Premier dentist who does not participate in our Advantage network, the member receives benefits as if he or she has Delta Dental Premier coverage.
