Dental Insurance


Regular full-time faculty and staff members are eligible to enroll in the Penn State Dental Plan. The Dental Plan is administered by United Concordia (UCCI). As an alternative to UCCI participating providers, you may use any dental care specialist of your choice.

  • When you use a UCCI network provider, you will maximize your benefits. UCCI contracts with dental care professionals to provide quality services at a discounted rate.
  • When you use an out-of-network provider, UCCI pays a maximum allowable charge based on the in-network contracted amount. Charges that exceed the maximum allowable charges are your responsibility.

You can find a list of participating providers outside of Centre County by visiting the UCCI website, and selecting "Advantage Plus" for the network, or by contacting United Concordia's toll-free number (800) 423-8217. If you are trying to locate a participating provider in Centre County, please view the Nittany Dental Network provider list.

Dependent children are eligible for coverage on your dental insurance up to the age of 26. Eligiblity is regardless of student status, marital status, or ability to have insurance through their employer.

NOTE: If the adult dependent child of the employee is married, only the adult dependent child of the employee is eligible for coverage.

After your dependent child is no longer eligible, your dependent child will receive information from Lifetime Benefit Solutions regarding continuing benefits under COBRA. Additional information regarding COBRA benefits can be found on our COBRA website.
