Dental Services Covered by Medicaid

States are required to provide children under 21 (who are covered by Medicaid) with Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) services.

EPSDT dental services include:

  • Screening—a dental examination by a dentist through a direct referral
  • General care—dental care for infections, pain relief, teeth restoration, and general maintenance of dental health
  • Emergency services—services to relieve pain, control bleeding, eliminate infection, and prevent death 
  • Preventative services—includes cleanings, sealants, and help with oral hygiene procedures
  • Therapeutic services—includes pulp therapy for adult and baby teeth, teeth restoration, braces that are medically necessary, and more
