Maryland Healthy Smiles Program Information

 

The Maryland Healthy Smiles Program is designed to provide children under the age of 21 with the necessary dental care they and their smiles need to thrive.

Benefits for children

The Maryland Healthy Smiles Dental Program covers most dental services for children. You may need to bring your child to more than one dental appointment, because:

• Your dentist may need to get approval in advance for some services.

• Your dentist may refer your child to a specialist for needed services.

Some of the covered dental services for children include:

• Regular checkups.

• Teeth cleanings.

• Fluoride treatments to help prevent cavities.

• Some tooth sealants to help prevent cavities.

• X-rays to check for unhealthy teeth.

Your responsibilities

To help make the Maryland Healthy Smiles Dental Program successful, you need to:

• Make and keep regular appointments with your Dental Home.

• Call and cancel as soon as possible if you can’t keep an appointment.

• Follow your dentist’s advice for dental care.

• Take care of your teeth and your child’s teeth.

• Never allow anyone else to use your Member ID card for dental services.

• Call Customer Service if your Member ID card is lost or stolen.

• Tell your dentist if you have other insurance coverage.

• Answer questions about health that will help your dentist take care of you or your child.

• Call Customer Service if you move to a different address or get a different telephone number.
