Dental Plans and Rates

Dental coverage is offered through three benefit plan options, including a very popular dental health maintenance organization (DHMO) plan and a traditional indemnity program with two "flex" plan designs.

The DHMO, Concordia Plus, includes 100 percent coverage of cleanings, exams, and other preventative services, as well as access to University Dental Health Services, a comprehensive dental practice located on the Pittsburgh campus. The traditional indemnity programs, Concordia Flex I and II, offer access to a broad network of dentists, as well as full coverage of preventative services.

University Faculty and Staff employees who choose to receive dental care through the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Dental Medicine will receive a 10% discount on all services not covered by insurance. Treatment is provided by University Faculty and Dental Students in a professional environment at the school. Please note that this discount is subject to change at the discretion of the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Dental Medicine.
