Dentists Choose Connection Dental® Network
PPO USA markets and leases the Connection Dental Network, a leading national network of dentists to third party administrators (TPA), brokers, consultants, insurance companies, self-insured employer groups, Taft-Hartley Trust Funds, and regional dental networks. Because PPO USA is not an insurance company, the Connection Dental Network manages the provider network. In most cases, PPO USA clients’ process and pay claims.
Bring new patients to your practice by becoming a preferred provider in the Connection Dental Network.
Connection Dental Network targets dentists by concentrating recruitment efforts within a specific geographic area, identifying groups and highly-utilized dentists. PPO USA coordinates with Connection Dental Network to recruit dentists nominated by employer groups. If a member wishes to visit a provider outside of the Connection Dental Network, a group’s utilization analysis will be performed by PPO USA to recruit that provider into the Connection Dental Network.
Clients and members can nominate a dentist not found in the Connection Dental Network by filling out a Nominate a Dentist form. After the nomination is received, a Connection Dental Network recruitment specialist will contact that provider.

Providing the best dentists to clients and their employer groups is a top priority for PPO USA. Providers are credentialed and re-credentialed through an outside Credentials Verification Organization (CVO) and approved or denied by an internal peer review. Initial credentialing occurs when the provider agrees to Connection Dental Network’s contract terms and becomes a participating provider. Dentists must be re-credentialed every three years thereafter. Credentialing dentists’ qualifications ensures they meet any applicable state and federal regulations and accreditation requirements. It does not guarantee any level of quality or service performed by a dentist.
Maintaining a network of highly-qualified providers has lead the Connection Dental Network to achieve and maintain URAC certification. Connection Dental became accredited in September 2005 as an accredited Health Network. Then in 2016 Connection Dental Network achieved Dental Network Accreditation with a perfect score.
