UW–Madison offers two supplemental dental options through Delta Dental in addition to Uniform Dental Benefits (UDB)/Preventive Dental. UDB is available through State Group Health Insurance. Preventive Dental is available for employees who are not enrolled in the State Group Health Insurance program. If you or a family member need dental work you didn’t plan on, a supplemental dental plan can help reduce the amount you pay. It can also be a wise investment when you’re considering more extensive treatments or procedures, like braces or dentures. The State of Wisconsin Delta Dental site provides contacts, plan summaries and a provider search.
You have 30 days from the date your employment begins to enroll. You may also apply for coverage within 30 days of certain life events.

Both supplemental dental plans provide extended coverage, but have different coverage levels and in-network providers. Verify the Delta Dental network your provider is in before choosing a plan. Preventive services, such as cleanings, are covered under the UDB but are not covered under the supplemental dental plans.
