Tooth decay is the most common preventable chronic disease among children in the United States. If left untreated, it can negatively affect a child's physical and social development, as well as his or her school performance.

Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) cover dental services, including check-ups, x-rays, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, fillings, and more.

Don’t Have Dental Coverage?

Medicaid and CHIP offer free or low-cost health insurance for kids up to age 19. Parents, Medicaid might cover you, too. Select your state to find health insurance programs in your area to learn more or enroll today – or call 1-877-KIDS-NOW.
