HARRISBURG, Pa., Oct. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The latest rankings from Netminder show United Concordia's new Alliance network is the second or third largest dental PPO network in many states, and one of the largest in the nation.

"This report supports our claim that the scope and size of United Concordia's Alliance network offers our members enhanced access to quality dental care providers where they live and work," said James Bramson, D.D.S., chief dental officer. "Netminder's report shows that Alliance has more than 94,000 unique dentists. This equates to more than 227,000 access points – 50,000 more than our Advantage Plus network, formerly our largest."

Released bi-annually by the Ignition Group, a leading provider of network comparison tools and information, the report includes the number of unique providers and access points for leading dental carriers as of September 2012.

"At United Concordia, we are committed to addressing the needs of our customers," said Dr. Bramson. "And with greater access to significant discounts from Alliance network dentists, groups and members are better able to manage dental plan costs."
