Update Your Practice Records

Your practice information appears in our network dentist directories (including our online Find a Doctor tool) and is used in claims processing. Keeping your information current helps ensure that patients can locate your practice and that we process your claims accurately. Please report updates to your practice information, as instructed below, whenever one of the following occurs:

  • Your practice address changes
  • Your practice phone number changes
  • You need to add or delete a dentist from your practice
  • Your IRS taxpayer identification number (TIN) changes
  • Your National Provider Identifier (NPI) number is assigned
