Meet Justin*

Justin is a healthy 43-year-old. While skiing on vacation he slipped on ice and crashed into a tree; breaking his two front teeth.

Luckily Justin was covered by UNL’s Dental & Vision Shield. No network restrictions allowed Justin to see a dentist so that he could get the help he needed immediately.

Justin was grateful to receive a helping hand in his time of need. 80% of his outpatient dental surgery was covered by UNL, up to the calendar maxiumum.
