Does Colorado Medicaid Cover 100% of Pediatric Dental Care?

Did you know that Colorado Medicaid covers 100% of pediatric dental care for children enrolled in the plan? These important services are offered as part of the Health First Colorado Medicaid program to ensure that all Colorado kids have access to treatments that are important for maintaining good oral health.

Dental health problems are a leading reason that Colorado children miss school and their parents miss work. The Delta Dental Foundation found that in Colorado, parents miss an average of 2.5 days of work and children are absent an average of 58 hours from school tending to oral health problems.

Often, parents may not be aware of the many pediatric dental services that are completely covered by Colorado’s dental Medicaid program. Below is a comprehensive list of approved Medicaid services to help you discover all the treatments that your child is eligible for.

It is important to check with your child’s dentist and verify coverage, and that they are a pediatric dental Medicaid provider. For a list of our Colorado dentists that accept Medicaid, please scroll to the bottom of this article.
