Op-Ed: You and Your Dentist May Have a Bone to Pick With Delta Dental
WSDA member Dr. Craig Neal shares his opinion regarding recently vetoed bylaw amendments by Delta Dental's leadership.
Something important happened for oral health in Washington. Dentists across the state closed their offices for a day in September and met to vote on bylaw amendments to make Delta Dental of Washington, the state’s largest dental benefits carrier, more patient-focused, transparent and responsive to member dentists.
In this day of razor-thin margins and contested elections, the results weren’t even close: More than 91 percent of the votes cast supported the changes.
Despite this overwhelming majority, Delta has chosen to act as if it never happened.
