Cigna's Dental Health Maintenance Organization Has Largest Network In Nation

Stocks in this article: CI

Cigna's Dental Health Maintenance Organization (DHMO) network is the largest in the nation with more than 7,000 general dentist locations, according to The Ignition Group’s latest NetMinder report. Cigna's highly successful DHMO network has been growing by double-digit percentages each year since 2008 and currently provides industry-leading service* to over 1.3 million customers throughout the U.S.

“When a dentist is easy to find and convenient to access, more people can take advantage of preventive care. This in turn can help lead to better overall personal health and wellness,” said Dr. Michael Hahn, national dental director for Cigna. “Most people don’t realize that tooth decay is a chronic disease. The key to managing it is to take care of your teeth and gums before a problem begins.”

To participate in Cigna's dental networks, dentists must successfully complete a rigorous and selective screening process to verify they are licensed, credentialed practitioners.

In addition to access to the nation’s largest network, Cigna's DHMO customers also have access to a live Dental Information Line staffed with health care professionals 24/7/365 for any oral health related questions. They can also find real-time information about their dental benefits, and online tools such as cavity and gum disease risk assessments and dental health articles and videos from WebMD at
