UnitedHealthcare Dental HMO (Dental Direct) is unique for a DHMO dental plan. You are not required to select a provider as long as you and your dependents go in-network. If you receive services from a provider outside of the approved network, you would be responsible for paying the entire dental bill yourself.

To find a UnitedHealthcare Dental HMO dentist, go to www.myuhc.com and select Find a Dentist, or call 800.999.3367.

  • Part-time employees are eligible to enroll in the UnitedHealthcare Dental HMO plan only.
  • Dual Coverage Not Allowed for the Same Dental Plan
    • If both you and your spouse are an employee of Fresno Unified School District and qualify for coverage as a Primary Enrollee, neither of you may enroll as a Dependent of the other for the same dental plan. In addition, only one of you may enroll your dependent child(ren) for the same dental plan. However, if you and your spouse enroll in separate dental plans (i.e., one enrolls in Delta Dental and the other enrolls in UHC), you may cover your spouse and dependent child(ren) in each plan.
