Dental Care

All those enrolled in the University of California Student Health Insurance Plan (UC SHIP) are automatically enrolled in the dental care coverage through Delta Dental. UCSF Dental Center provides comprehensive dental care for adults and children.  The highest level of benefit is with a Delta Dental PPO network provider.  Before seeking care please confirm with the dental office if they are Delta Dental PPO network provider.  Delta Dental Premier network providers and out-of-network providers will result in higher out-of-pocket expenses.
