Dental Benefits

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), oral health touches every aspect of our lives but is often taken for granted.  UC offers a variety of dental plans* to help you and your eligible family members manage your overall health by getting the dental care that you and your family need.

Anthem is UC’s dental carrier. Our dental plans offer a choice of network and out-of-network coverage.  You receive a greater benefit when you use a provider who participates in the Anthem network (called Dental Complete in all 50 states).

Employee Contributions and Tiers of Coverage

UC pays for a significant portion of your monthly dental premium.  You can choose from four different coverage tiers: employee only, employee + child/ren, employee + spouse/domestic partner, employee + family.  Your cost can be found on the Employee Contributions page.  Please refer to the Benefits Eligiblity page for information regarding eligiblity.

Eligilbe employees who visit the dentist for a cleaning and exam can earn incentive points that can lead to cash rewards through Be Well UC!
