Virginia Medicaid made dental benefits available to adult members starting on July 1, 2021.
All Medicaid members with full benefits now have access to dental services, including:
- Cleanings and Preventive Care
- X-Rays and Exams
- Root Canals
- Gum-Related Treatments
- Oral Surgeries
- And More!
Your dental health can affect your overall health, including your heart and lungs. Taking care of your teeth and gums by brushing and flossing regularly, and seeing a dentist every 6 months, can help make sure you stay healthy.
Find a dentist near you who accepts Medicaid, so you can use these dental benefits. You will probably need to make an appointment two months in advance unless you have an emergency.
If you or someone in your family already has a dentist, check with them to see if they accept Medicaid patients.
