Healthy Kids Dental

from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan

Your child’s smile is important to you. It's important to us too. That's why the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan have teamed up to bring you the Healthy Kids Dental program — dental coverage at no cost to you. If your child is under 21, lives in Michigan and has a Medicaid plan, they might qualify for this program.

Healthy Kids Dental provides coverage your child needs at no cost to you

Healthy Kids Dental coverage includes:

  • Exams
  • X-rays
  • Screenings and assessments
  • Sealants
  • Extractions
  • Fillings
  • Cleanings
  • Root canals
  • Emergency dental services
  • Fluoride treatments

See the Benefits Summary (PDF) for a more complete list of all the benefits.

Children should have a first dental visit when the first tooth comes in or by age 1, whichever comes first. After that, children should have a dental exam every six months.
