Dental Insurance

PLEASE SHOW THIS TO YOUR PARENT OR GUARDIAN

We are pleased to offer students a dental insurance plan to help you maintain your oral health – with BrightSmile for Students, it’s easy. Review plan features and coverage amounts here.

PLAN HIGHLIGHTS

  • A $275 charge to your bursar’s account and you will be covered for an entire year.
  • Benefit year: August 1 – July 31
  • Campus Smiles (1st floor of the Wellness Building) has price-matched the allowance, which means you’ll pay $0 when you visit them. When you visit any other dentist, you will only pay the amount beyond what is covered.
  • See p. 8-14 of the member brochure for coverage amounts applicable to dental providers not located within Campus Smiles.
  • There is no network to search – go anywhere.
  • Visit the dentist as often as you like – you are covered up to $2,000 annually.
