Dental Benefits

Finding an affordable dental plan is not always easy. Now, through Anthem Student Advantage you can access high-quality dental care at a cost designed with budget in mind. Regular dental care is important as checkups can detect early warning signs of serious health problems, when they are easier to treat. That means taking care of your teeth can help protect your overall health.

Who is eligible?

Enrollment is voluntary to all University of Nevada, Reno, registered International and Medical students taking 1 or more credits; and all graduate students taking 6 or more graduate credit hours. Covered students may also enroll their dependents.
