Protecting more than just your smile®

With quality dental coverage, access to a large, national dentist network, exceptional customer service, convenient and secure online tools, United Concordia has the total dental benefits package.

United Concordia is committed to the oral health of our members. We have over 45 years of dental-only experience and use that knowledge to design robust and flexible benefit programs. We’ve built national networks and have implemented routine verifications of dentists’ credentials and on-site inspections to ensure our members are receiving the highest quality dental care.

Plan information

Under the DPPO plan, members may seek services from dentists participating in the Advantage Plus Network or from non-participating dentists without the need to select a primary care dentist. You also do not need a referral to receive care from a specialty dentist, making it easy to get the oral care you need when you need it.

Not only will you have excellent access to participating dentists, but you can also get a discount on services not covered in your plan, such as teeth whitening (just look for the green SAVE icon in your search results).

Tip: Since COVID-19 has many people working remotely, you and your family may be farther from your regular dentists. Don’t worry, it’s simple to find an in-network dentist closer to your current location. Just visit United Concordia website or call our US-based customer service at 1-800-MD-TEETH to find your dentist or a dentist near you.

Added Value Benefit Features®

Preventive Incentive®

With Preventive Incentive, all Class I Diagnostic and Preventive services—such as cleanings, exams, x-rays and more—do not count toward your annual maximum.

The Smile for Health® Maternity Dental Benefit

This benefit provides pregnant women with an additional dental cleaning during pregnancy. The extra cleaning can help prevent periodontal (gum) disease, which has been linked to premature and low-birthweight babies, as well as help control pregnancy gingivitis.
