Get more patients

Guardian is one of the nation’s largest dental insurance providers, covering over 8 million members nationally. Our members live and work in your area, and we make sure they can easily find your offices through our online Find a Provider tool and mobile app.


Our plans reward members for visiting participating dentists and for staying in a Guardian Dental plan. Our PPO plans are designed to help members get more out of their annual maximum. For example, our Maximum Rollover feature allows members to roll over unused annual maximums so they have more money to spend on care in the future.

Fast and accurate payments

Guardian pays claims quickly – an average two-day turnaround for PPO dental claims when submitted online. We’re also accurate, given our 99% accuracy rate.1  

Income you can count on

For dentists in our Managed Dental Care/DHMO network, you could generate regular monthly income and may even qualify for supplemental compensation. In addition, you’ll receive payment from members at the time of their visit.

Easy benefits administration

Guardian Anytime is our one-stop resource for benefits administration. You can check and submit claims, verify eligibility, access claim forms and rosters, and more.

Another way we help reduce paperwork is through our direct referral program for Managed Dental Care/DHMO patients. You can refer patients to specialists without prior authorization, so the process is easy and you can provide a better patient experience.

Experience you can trust

Guardian provides millions of members with access to quality dental care. You can trust that we are committed to our relationship with you and helping your patients. That’s why most dentists who become part of our network stay with Guardian.1
