What is Medicaid?

If you are inquiring about Medicaid, it is likely that you and your family cannot afford private dental insurance and are considered “low-income.” The state of Texas and the federal government provide Medicaid to individuals who fall into a specific income bracket, but this beneficial system allows you to bring your child into our office to receive preventive services. It doesn’t matter how old they are (i.e., infants, toddlers, children, teens), Medicaid will help to cover the cost of treatment that is designed to safeguard their teeth and gums from the most common oral health problems.

What is CHIP?

The CHIP program is a subset of Medicaid that specifically covers a child’s dental care. It stands for Children’s Health Insurance Program and is a great option for families who do not qualify for Medicaid but cannot afford private insurance. Not only will it keep you from having to pay higher costs out of pocket, but it will also reduce your expenses and make it possible to keep your child’s teeth and gums in optimal shape as they grow older. The only stipulations are that your child is under the age of 18 and a legal resident of Texas/US citizen.

Medicaid and CHIP for Dental Care

At Dulce Dental, we can help your little one achieve a healthier smile by providing a multitude of available treatments. No matter if you plan to use CHIP or Medicaid to pay for services, you can expect to have access to:

Even if your child needs restorative or emergency dentistry, our team will work to help lower your expenses and ensure a more affordable approach since CHIP and Medicaid are designed to pay for more preventive services.

Why Prevention Matters

Preventive dentistry is key no matter your age. Dental cavities, tooth decay, gum disease, and other common oral health problems can be prevented as long as you and your child maintain a good oral hygiene routine at home and continue to see our professionals every six months for dental checkups and cleanings.

As a Medicaid dentist, we know dental care can be expensive, which is why you can count on us to help you through the financial side of dentistry every time you visit. By choosing to use Medicaid or CHIP to cover the cost of your child’s treatment, you’ll not only save big on many available services but you’ll, more importantly, be setting them up on a path to better oral health that will carry with them well into adulthood.
