The Louisiana Department of Insurance is warning senior citizens to watch out for a company called Dental2U that is selling dental insurance without a license.

“We are issuing a warning to seniors because we have learned this unlicensed company is targeting residents of nursing home facilities in south Louisiana, specifically in the Greater New Orleans, Baton Rouge and northshore areas, and may be reaching out to potential targets in other parts of the state as well,” said Insurance Commissioner Jim Donelon. “If a consumer wants to verify whether a company is licensed to sell insurance in Louisiana, they can call our toll-free number 1-800-259-5300.”

The Insurance Department has obtained a 19th Judicial District court order blocking the Cleveland, Ohio-based company from doing business in Louisiana.
