The TRICARE Retiree Dental Program
The TRICARE Retiree Dental Program (TRDP) is a PPO (preferred provider organization) benefit program. Since the inception of the program in 1998, the TRDP has grown to 1.4 million members nationwide. Two national networks, Delta Dental Legion and Delta Dental PPO (DPO in Texas), compose the participating TRDP dentist network.
Enrollees in the TRDP are strongly encouraged to seek treatment from a participating TRDP network dentist. Since they pay 100% of the premium for their TRDP coverage, enrollees count on optimum program value and quality dental care—both of which they will get when their dental treatment is provided by one of our participating TRDP network dentist.
Our military retirees have given our Nation tremendous service over the years. Your participation in the TRDP network is the most meaningful way you can demonstrate to these retirees and to your community how much you value their service to our country.
