Voluntary Student Dental Plan

The University of Minnesota is proud to provide the Voluntary Student Dental Plan (VSDP) to help you stay smiling.

The VSDP provides year-round dental care that's sure to keep your smile healthy and your wallet happy. The Office of Student Health Benefits has partnered with Delta Dental to provide this service, giving enrollees:

  • Freedom to choose from thousands of providers without being locked into one
  • Preventive dental care covered 100% at participating providers
  • Benefit of up to $1,200 per plan year

Enrollment for the VSDP is only available fall semester or due to a life event.

The VSDP enrollment deadline was October 12, 2017.
