TLC has added a new dental provider to its dental network.
The cable network announced Thursday that Delta Dont Care has a new network of dentists in its dental area in Los Angeles, with plans to expand its dental team there.
Delta DontCare is the newest dental network to join TLC’s dental network, joining two others that have announced that they will expand their services.
The dental provider is in Los Feliz, which is in the San Fernando Valley, according to the network.
Delta Drescate is in West Hollywood.
Delta will be available in select markets this spring, and will be expanding in more markets later this year.
“With more than 200 locations in Los Angelas, San Fernando, Orange County and Ventura Counties, Delta DtoC is the most comprehensive dental network in the nation,” said Jeff Schulman, president of TLC.
“With its broad network of dental care professionals, Delta provides the best in dental care, and we look forward to continuing to expand our partnership with Delta to ensure that you have access to the best care and services.”
Delta DtoCs dental team will be a mix of regional and specialty specialists, which include dentists, gynontologists, dental hygienists, orthodontists, podiatrists, and podiatrist assistants, according the network’s website.
They will also have anesthesiologists, plastic surgeons, podiatric surgeons, and orthopedic surgeons, among others.
Delta is the only cable network to have a full dental team.
TLC plans to add more dental providers to its network.
The Los Angeles-based company is owned by Comcast, and operates a network of about 700 clinics, including about 50 in Los Angles and another 20 in Orange County.
Delta will also be adding new dental clinics to its other dental network by the end of this year, with more planned, according Schulmans statement.
The dental provider will offer a variety of services, including dental care to patients who are not in Los Angels or Ventura counties, he said.
Delta’s dental team is also planning to expand to other areas in Los Alamos, Long Beach, Orange, San Diego and San Francisco.
Schulman said Delta DontoCis a team that is very focused on serving our community and delivering excellent, affordable, quality dental care.
He said Delta is excited to work with TLC on expanding its dental service network and to continue to deliver outstanding dental care for our patients.
The cable network has also announced that it is hiring additional dental hygeineists to help it maintain a dentistry network in areas where dental hygaison has been limited.
The job openings will be announced soon, according TLC spokesman Chris Crouch.
The hiring of dental hygenists is part of the network expansion.
Delta’s dental service has been a major source of frustration for many consumers, who have complained about poor quality dental work and delays in appointments.TLC announced last year that it would cut the number of clinics it had in its network by 20% and would cut dental appointments by 10% this year in some areas.
The network has said that it plans to open at least 30 additional clinics in the coming months.
Delta has not yet disclosed the number and type of dental services it will offer.
