Understanding Medicaid for Children
Tooth decay is among the most common chronic diseases in children in the US. States recognize the importance of dental care and provide benefits for eligible children under 21 based on their household income. You can visit this website to see if your children qualify for Medicaid services. The minimum dental care services covered by a kids’ dentist that accepts Medicaid must include:
- Infection treatments
- Teeth restorations
- Oral health maintenance
