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.

Services covered include:

  • Cleanings and Preventive Care
  • X-Rays and Exams
  • Fillings
  • Dentures
  • Root Canals
  • Gum-Related Treatment
  • Oral Surgeries
  • And More!

Dental health is an important part of your overall health, and you should visit the dentist every 6 months. If you need transportation to your appointment, call the number on your health plan ID card.
