Medicaid FAQ: Getting Kids to the Dentist
At Kool Smiles, our primary practice is treating children and ensuring each child has access to high quality dental care, regardless of insurance coverage. Below are some frequently asked questions we receive concerning Medicaid and children's dental health.
Q. My child is enrolled in CHIPs — is that the same as Medicaid?
Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIPs) is a low-cost health insurance plan for kids whose families make too much money to qualify for Medicaid but still need some assistance. Dental care is provided for kids enrolled in CHIPs, but each state determines the services they can receive.
Q. We have three kids with Medicaid insurance — will Kool Smiles see all of them?
Of course, we'd love to have them. We place no limit on the number of Medicaid families we see, and we're always accepting new patients. You can make an appointment online or give us a call at (855) 854-3621.
Q. Can my kids get their teeth whitened with Medicaid?
To receive dental benefits from Medicaid, there needs to be a medical reason for treatment. That includes preventative visits like exams, cleanings and sealants. Procedures without a medical reason will not be covered by Medicaid.
Q. My kids are young, do they really need to go to the dentist?
Yes. It's recommended that kids visit the dentist around their first birthday. Your child's baby teeth help them to chew and speak and pave the way for permanent teeth to come in. Here's a few great tips on caring for kid's baby teeth.
