Importance of Dentistry
In order for you and your child to have supreme oral health, it’s vital to go to the dentist twice every year, as the American Dental Association recommends. However, the top reason Americans don’t go to the dentist is due to finances.
At Rio, it’s our goal to provide superior dental care to as many families as possible, regardless of finances. That’s why if you’re looking for a dental office that accepts medicaid, Rio has you covered. We’ll work with you and your medicaid benefits to ensure you can get the quality dentistry you deserve.
Medicaid and CHIP Availability
Visiting the dentist isn’t only about getting a deep clean at that appointment – it’s about preventing serious issues from developing, such as gum disease or tooth decay. This prevents the need for more intense treatments or issues later on in life.
Medicaid understands how important dental care is for someone’s health and wellbeing. Medicaid is not the only option we accept; Children’s Health Insurance Program, also known as CHIP, is a program that provides affordable healthcare coverage for children in families who may not qualify for Medicaid. Whether you have Medicaid or CHIP, you can rest assured that your child will be able to receive the services they need to keep their mouths healthy and prevent diseases.
Not going to the dentist twice yearly has a detrimental effect on children’s health and wellness, and can change the trajectory of their oral health for life. However, with these coverage options, your family won’t have any excuse to not come see us twice a year!
