About 3M's Dental Plan

Delta Dental of Minnesota is the claims administrator for 3M's dental plan. 3Mers have access to the Delta Dental PPO (formerly DeltaPreferred Option) and Delta Dental Premier (formerly DeltaPremier) network of dentists. 3M's dental plan is a "silent" Preferred Provider Organization (PPO), which provides discounts for services. With a "silent" PPO, you can visit any dentist inside or outside the network and receive the same benefit level from the plan. However, visiting a dentist in the Delta Dental PPO or Delta Dental Premier network may save you money. In-network dentists agree to charge competitive, discounted rates to 3M and 3Mers.
