Sydney Health app

Delta Dental app

For dental care, you will need your Delta Dental ID card. This is not available on the Sydney Health app. The Sydney Health mobile app includes a link to Delta Dental of California's mobile website: The mobile site will provide claim information, insurance card information and the ability to search for a provider once you are registered on the site.

  1. You will be asked to login or create an account.
  2. When you are asked for your member ID, use the numeric portion of your Anthem ID number (without the XDP prefix) of your UCSD student ID#.
  3. Your Delta Dental ID card should be visible from the "Home" screen.
  4. If you want to print your Delta Dental ID card, you can email it to yourself by pressing "Email ID Card" on the "Home" screen.

Note: Delta Dental Plans Association has a mobile app, however, this is NOT intended for UC SHIP/Delta Dental of CA.
