    I have Delta Dental. Never had a problem with them. The only thing you need to remember is to find a dentist that takes them.

    Delta Dental.It's good for check-ups and cleanings...It's not much of a "military benefit" if at all...it is virtually identical to the plan I can purchase at work.

    It's not really a military benefit but more of an opportunity to join a group insurance plan. The military doesn't provide retiree dental services so this is about the best they can offer. It helps a little, but it's better than nothing.

    Dental insurance overall sucks real bad. We have Delta, but they're pretty much all the same. I went in on Monday and my wife went in today. We're looking at needing work done (a couple crowns, a bridge, etc) that's going to end up running us $5k to $7k AFTER insurance covers their share. I can't figure out why dental and eye insurance isn't part of normal medical.

    Ive never understood that either, NOR why compared to other programs (such as regular med insurance) you seem to pony up a lot more than normal..
