Dental PPO Plan with Ortho explained
NARRATOR: Your way to a brighter, healthier smile? Get there with the UnitedHealthcare Dental PPO plan where, at the root of it, you'll find benefits designed to help meet your needs
The United Healthcare logo – a stylized, navy blue letter U that splits into three stripes on the right-hand side – appears in the center of a white background. Guitar music plays as the stripesform a ribbon that undulates across the background and disappears, leaving navy blue words in its wake:
ONSCREEN TEXT: Dental Preferred Provider Organization Plan
ONSCREEN TEXT: Dental PPO Plan
NARRATOR: Starting with the flexibility to see any network dentist you want, anywhere across the country. And with 24/7 virtual dental visits, you can connect with the dentist at any time, too.
A blue background wipes across, replacing the white. Circular graphics pop on to the background one by one, beginning with a white dentist’s coat in the center. A toothbrush with a blob of toothpaste, a heart, a toothbrush in a cup, a calendar, and a container of floss appear in a white, teal, orange, and yellow color palette. Teal dashes connect each circle to one another. White text appears at the top:
ONSCREEN TEXT: Large national network
The graphics fade away, replaced by a laptop on a turquoise shelf that slides across the blue background from left to right. Displayed on-screen is a white dentist’s coat with a pen in the coat pocket.
ONSCREEN TEXT: Virtual care
ONSCREEN TEXT: 2 virtual dental visits per plan per year
ONSCREEN TEXT: $0 additional cost
NARRATOR: For most plans, preventive care and services are covered at 100% in the network, including routine checkups and annual oral cancer screenings for adults, plus enhanced benefits for those who are expecting.
The laptop slides away to the right, replaced by a small desktop calendar on another turquoise shelf, next to a toothbrush in a cup. A tooth icon marks a day at the end of the month on the calendar.

Pages flip over on the calendar.

A pacifier drops down beside the toothbrush cup.

The desktop calendar and other items disappear as the teal shelf zooms in to the foreground, spreading across the bottom of the view. A white tooth appears on the left-hand side, and a small teal blue crown drops onto it from above.
NARRATOR: Many common dental services are covered, too, like crowns, fillings and traditional braces, aligners, and virtual orthodontic visits.

Next, a row of crooked teeth appear along the turquoise stripe.
NARRATOR: If it’s a straighter smile you’re after, you may have the option of Smile™ Direct Club. ONSCREEN TEXT: smile™
NARRATOR: If you’re a candidate, the dental plan may pay half the cost of your aligner treatment.
An invisible aligner drops down to straighten the row of teeth:

NARRATOR: It may also include, at zero dollars additional cost, benefits like an in-store or at- home 3D digital image, and a treatment plan monitored by a licensed dentist.
ONSCREEN TEXT: 3D digital image In store or at home
The invisible aligner disappears, revealing a straight and gleaming row of teeth. The turquoise stripe curves in the shape of a smile, as if one set of gums.

NARRATOR: So, that's what you'll get! But don't forget, there's no need for referrals to see a specialist because, in this plan, referrals are not required.
The turquoise stripe sweeps up to create a new background, and two speech bubbles appear: one white with a yellow question mark inside, and the other deep blue with three white stripes inside. The question mark changes to a check mark. The speech bubbles split apart and disappear on opposite sides of the view, and the circular graphic of the dentist’s coat appears in the center once more. Connected by dashes, the network graphics return, then transform into gleaming gold coins.
NARRATOR: Oh, and did you know that you can save money by using a network dentist? There are three quick ways to find one near you: tap into the United Healthcare app, sign in at myuhc.com or call the number on your dental ID card.
The icons disappear, leaving three gold coins in a row on the turquoise background. One by one, the coins flip over from left to right, revealing teal, blue, and white graphics of a smartphone, a laptop, and a first aid kit.
NARRATOR: Other things you can do online: schedule virtual appointments, estimate your out- of-pocket costs ahead of time, access and share your digital dental ID card, view your claims details, and so much more.
A deep blue background wipes across, and a laptop displays a calendar with a checkmark on the last day shown.
ONSCREEN TEXT: Schedule virtual appointments
The laptop screen changes to show a series of teal lines with dollar signs next to them.
ONSCREEN TEXT: Estimate out-of-pocket costs A hand reaches out of the laptop, holding an ID card. ONSCREEN TEXT: Access your dental ID card
The hand retracts, and a white and blue series of tables with dollar signs appears on the laptop screen.

NARRATOR: Dental coverage. It’s good for your pearly whites, and your overall health. And getting regular screenings can help your dentist detect early signs of gum disease, which may help reduce the risk of other health conditions.
The view zooms in on the laptop until the white screen encompasses the view. On the left side, a glass cup sits on a blue shelf, and a toothbrush drops down into it. A peach slides next to the toothbrush cup.

Blue fine print appears.
