The College of Dentistry and the University Benefits Office have created an incentive program for faculty, staff, UI retirees, and their families who participate in Dental II.

Under this program, the University will pay 100% (no copay or deductible required) of treatment currently covered up to a participant’s annual maximum as long as the treatment is provided by dental students at the College of Dentistry.

This program was developed in order to increase the educational opportunities for third and fourth-year dental students by offering faculty, staff, retirees, and their families an incentive to participate in the educational training of these students. It is important to note that treatment in the student clinics takes extra time. Employees and family members who are currently patients in the student clinics are also eligible to participate in the program.

More information can be found on the College of Dentistry's website. 

Participation in this program is simple:

  • Call the College of Dentistry at 319-335-7499
    • Specificially for Orthodontia services, please call the Ortho Business Office at 319-335-7287.
  • Identify yourself or your family member as being insured with Dental II. You must specify that you are requesting an appointment in one of the student dental clinics.
  • A down payment is initially required but will be reimbursed at a later date when treatment is completed.
  • After you have received care in one of the student clinics, you will receive an Explanation of Benefits
    (EOB) form from Delta Dental of Iowa. This EOB will show that you owe a portion of the charges for your
    care, but the University will pay the remaining costs of the dental care received from the students, as long
    as the treatment is a covered benefit. You will not be billed by the College of Dentistry for your care in the student clinics under this program until your yearly maximum has been reached.

Please be aware that this program does not apply to any care provided by a College of Dentistry faculty member.

If you have any questions concerning the types of dental care that may be obtained under this program, please contact the College of Dentistry. Questions concerning your dental benefit coverage should be directed to the University Benefits Office.
