Already in network Large practices Re-credentialing First Dental Health

For dentists

Like many dental practices, the cyber security incident that occurred with Change Healthcare is impacting processes at First Dental Health. This event has disrupted electronic claims we receive from Change Healthcare. We continue to work closely with Change Healthcare to understand the extent of the event. At this time, we do not have evidence that customer data has been compromised.

In addition to Change Healthcare, we actively participate with DentalXchange and Vyne (previously Tesia) for EDI claims processing. To continue to serve provider needs during this time of disruption, you can also submit claims via paper. Mail claim forms to ­­­­­­­First Dental Health PO BOX 919029 SAN DIEGO, CA 92191.

How we work with dentists

First Dental Health is a network of dentists for a variety of customers including individuals/families, administrators, employers, and insurance companies. We offer networks in Arizona, California, and Nevada.

PPO Network
A fee-for-service network.
EPO (PPO PLUS in AZ and NV) Network
A subset of the PPO network is also fee-for-service based with a deeper discount than the PPO.
ACCESS Network
A network for individuals/families who don’t have insurance. Patients in this program don’t have claim forms, deductibles, or waiting periods to meet. You simply treat the patient and collect the First Dental Health ACCESS contracted fees directly from them. This network is not available in Nevada.
