With this dental plan, you can see any dentist you want, anywhere across the country. However, when choosing a network dentist who is part of the plan's large national network, you may receive discounted rates only available to members.
Referrals are not needed to see a specialist.
Preventive care, including routine exams and cleanings, is covered 100% in the network. Oral cancer screenings are available to adults as part of the preventive care benefit. Extra dental visits may be covered during pregnancy and the first 3 months after birth*.

Most dental plans share the same idea: there’s what you pay for care, when you pay for it, and how much of those care costs you and your plan share.
For services other than preventive care, you pay a deductible - a set dollar amount - before your coverage kicks in.
As soon as the deductible is met, you and the plan will share the costs of services you received. Known as coinsurance, this is the percentage of costs you pay for covered dental care.
The plan pays for services up to a set dollar amount, called an annual maximum. If you reach the maximum amount, you’ll need to pay the entire cost of any additional dental care you receive that year.
Dental plan programs designed to help you keep your teeth and gums healthier while helping you control costs.
Now available as part of this plan's orthodontic benefit, SmileDirectClub straightens teeth with clear aligners sent directly to you. This means you dental plan may help you get the smile you’ll love.
If you are a candidate, the dental plan may pay half the cost of your aligner treatment. Your benefit also includes these services at no extra cost:
The FlexAppeal Enhanced program is part of your UnitedHealthcare dental plan. Designed to help you keep your teeth and gums healthier, this program includes three benefits:
Our Consumer MaxMultiplier® program rewards you for keeping up with your dental care by adding dollars to the following plan year's annual maximum. These dollars can be used to pay for qualifying claims, excluding orthodontic services.
Each family member covered by your plan can earn his or her own awards. Members will not actually earn cash that they can access or withdraw.
Our Step-up Preventive Plan design rewards you for completing preventive care. When you complete your preventive care requirements in plan year 1, you'll "step-up" to a higher coinsurance benefit in year . If you satisfy preventive care requirements in year 2, the benefit "steps up" again in plan 3. If you don't meet the requirement during the following year, the benefit will "step down" to the prior year's percentage.
If you don't meet preventive care requirements will not see a change in their benefit. The Step-up Preventive feature is designed to encourage members to take advantage of preventive care services.
