Dental Health is Important to Overall Wellness

All Medicaid members with full benefits have access to dental services through their Medicaid coverage. During an appointment, your dentist or dental hygienist may clean your teeth, take X-rays and check your gums to understand your overall dental health.

Protect Your Smile: Know Your Dental Options

Medicaid dental services are limited to medically necessary emergency procedures for most adults. Health plans may offer added dental benefits above Medicaid. Compare plans to see which benefits work best for you. Call the Managed Care Helpline if you would like to change your plan.
