Welcome Dentists!

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.

Provider Relations

The Connection Dental Network is a national, open-panel, and fee-for-service PPO network. Dentists are welcome to join if credentialing requirements are met and agree to the participation terms.  Visit Connection Dental Network to learn more.


Provider Recruitment

Connection Dental Network targets dentists by concentrating recruitment efforts within a specific geographic area and identifying a group of highly-utilized dentists.  PPO USA coordinates with Connection Dental Network to recruit dentists nominated by employer groups.  If a member visits a dentist outside of the network, a group’s utilization analysis will be performed by PPO USA to recruit that dentist into the Connection Dental Network.


PPO USA clients and client members can nominate a dentist not found in the Connection Dental Network by filling out the Nominate a Dentist form.  After the nomination is received, a Connection Dental Network recruitment specialist will contact that dentist to start the credentialing process.


Dental Recruit Utility: this custom-built utility allows for complete and accurate tracking of the Connection Dental Network dentist recruitment process.  This state-of-the-art tool helps to ensure the most effective and efficient recruitment process is followed for continual network development.



Providers are credentialed and re-credentialed through an outside Credentials Verification Organization (CVO) with final approval by our internal peer review. Initial credentialing occurs when the dentist agrees to Connection Dental Network’s contract terms and becomes a participating dentist.  Re-credentialing occurs every three years thereafter.


The Credentialing Department follows stringent industry best practices and URAC Accreditation guidelines to maintain a network of highly-qualified providers.
