How can we help?

Finding a dentist who accepts Medicaid can be challenging for parents. While the Medicaid program provides dental coverage for low-income families, not all dentists participate in the program. This can make it difficult for parents to find a dentist who will provide quality dental care for their children. However, there are several steps that parents can take to find a Medicaid dentist who will provide the necessary care for their child.

Start by Checking the Medicaid Provider Directory

The first step is to check the Medicaid provider directory. This directory will provide a list of dentists who accept Medicaid in your area. You can find this directory on your state’s Medicaid website or by calling your state’s Medicaid office. It’s important to note that not all dentists who accept Medicaid will be listed in the directory, so it’s important to ask each dentist whether they accept Medicaid.

Ask for Referrals

Another option is to ask for referrals from friends, family, or other healthcare providers. If you know someone who has a child with Medicaid coverage, ask them which dentist they use. You can also ask your child’s primary care physician or pediatrician for a referral to a Medicaid dentist.

Check Online Reviews

Once you have a list of Medicaid dentists in your area, it’s important to check online reviews. This will give you an idea of the quality of care provided by each dentist. You can check websites like Google, Yelp, or Healthgrades to see what other patients have to say about their experiences with each dentist.

Call Each Dentist

Before making an appointment, it’s important to call each dentist on your list to ask if they accept Medicaid. Some dentists may have stopped accepting Medicaid due to low reimbursement rates or other issues, so it’s important to confirm that they still participate in the program.

Consider the Location and Office Hours

When choosing a Medicaid dentist, it’s also important to consider the location and office hours. Choose a dentist who is conveniently located and has office hours that work with your schedule. This will make it easier to schedule appointments and ensure that your child receives the necessary care.


In conclusion, finding a Medicaid dentist can be a challenge, but it’s important for parents to take the time to find a dentist who will provide quality care for their child. By checking the Medicaid provider directory, asking for referrals, checking online reviews, calling each dentist, considering the location and office hours, and scheduling a consultation, parents can find a Medicaid dentist who will provide the necessary care for their child’s dental health.
