What is Denti-Cal?
Denti-Cal is a special program within California’s Medicaid program (known as Medi-Cal) that makes important dental services affordable and accessible to everyone who needs them. Denti-Cal is financed by the State of California and the federal government, and operates as a public health insurance program to provide health care services for those who need it most. The many benefits offered through Denti-Cal can help with taking good care of you and your children’s precious teeth and gums.
Denti-Cal covers many dental services, including:
- EExaminations, x-rays, and teeth cleanings
- EEmergency services for pain relief
- ETooth extractions
- EFluoride treatments
- EDental fillings
- ERoot canal treatments
