Helping kids grow up healthy and reach their dreams with dental coverage in Medicaid and CHIP

By: Guest Blogger

No child should be held back from their dreams due to dental disease. When children have good oral health, they are better able to learn, grow, and achieve their potential. Dental coverage opens the door to the care children need to stay cavity-free or get treatment for a dental issue before it becomes a more painful, expensive problem.

With Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), children and adolescents can count on comprehensive coverage, including dental care. Both programs are designed to meet kids' unique needs throughout childhood but have benefits that follow them into adulthood. This fact sheet highlights the value of Medicaid and CHIP oral health coverage to children and reviews the pediatric dental services covered by each program.
