Dental Benefits
  • Smiles For Children members under age 21 are covered for all medically necessary dental services, as well as orthodontic (braces) procedures provided by a participating dentist. Dental services include relief of pain and infection, restoration of teeth, and maintenance of dental health. An oral screening may be part of a physical exam your child gets from the doctor, but it does not take the place of the exam by the dentist.
