To get started, you need to tell the search where you are and what plan you have:

Step 1: If you have not used the search before, it will ask you to choose a location. You can enter your address, city or zip code or click on “use your current location.” As you type, options will appear below. Choose the correct option and click “Yes, this is correct.”

Step 2: Scroll through the list of available plans in your state and choose the name of your dental insurance plan as it appears on your member ID card. Or, start typing the name of your dental insurance plan as it appears on your member ID card. As you type, options will appear below. Choose the correct option. 

Step 3: Then you can look up dentist in four ways:

1. Find a Dentist by Name – If you know the name of the dentist you want, click on “Dentist by Name” and enter their last name in the search bar. Click on the name when it shows up below the search bar.*

If you do not have a specific dentist in mind and want a comprehensive list of all dentists who accept your plan, click “Search all” and click the magnifying glass in the right corner of the search field.*

2. Find a Dentist by Specialty – If you are searching for a dentist that specializes in a particular area, such as orthodontics or periodontics, click “Dentists by specialty.” Just start entering the type of dentist you want. The search bar will show suggestions to help as you type.*

3. Find an Office or Facility by Name – If you know the name of the practice—for example, Baltimore City Dental Group—click “Office or Facility by Name. Details for that practice, such as address, office hours and phone number, are provided in the search results.*

4. Find Services by Type – Use this if you are looking for office locations, care centers or other service areas near you.*

*Results pages can be further filtered by several options, such as provider gender, hours, whether they are accepting new patients and wheelchair accessibility.”
