Dearborn National® Announces Brand Name for PPO Dental Network—Dearborn National Dental Network
CHICAGO, IL − May 9, 2011 − Dearborn National announced today that its PPO dental network will now be officially known as the Dearborn National Dental Network. This decision was the next step in further establishing the Dearborn National brand that began in 2010 when Fort Dearborn Life Insurance Company® and several of its affiliates began marketing their products under the new Dearborn National brand name.
"Using our brand name with the network can only enhance our growing presence in the dental marketplace," said John Doyle, President of Dearborn National's Dental Division. "The Dearborn National Dental Network is the largest in the U.S. with over 180,000 dental access points, and it continues to grow. This means that it's easier for existing and new members to find a dental provider nearby. The size and quality of our network is key to our success in the marketplace, and extending our brand to the network is a logical next step," added Doyle.
