Good For Your Health and Your Pocketbook
University of North Carolina recognizes that good dental health is important to overall health and is pleased to offer students and their dependents the option to enroll in this dental insurance plan.
Did you know approximately 120 severe medical conditions and illnesses can be detected and treated by a dental examination of the mouth, throat, and neck? With dental benefits, which promote regular visits to the dentist, serious oral health problems can be found early and treated more affordably. A healthy mouth reflects better general health and well-being.
The Ameritas dental insurance plan provides coverage for preventive care, with the added peace of mind that you have coverage for more complicated (and expensive) care.
- Undergraduate and graduate students who are eligible to pay the institutions' student health services fee, AND are either enrolled in a degree-seeking program or enrolled in a minimum of 6 credit hours per semester.
- Dependents of covered students.
