Dentist in Dallas That Accepts Medicaid

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!

  • CareCredit

You can play a part in preparing your child for his or her first visit to our office. Informing your child of the visit as an exciting experience for both of you can ease any hesitations. As a parent try to act relaxed, since your child may sense any anxiety on your part.

Explain to your child that the doctor will “count, brush, and maybe take pictures of their teeth”. We also ask that you assume the role of a silent observer. Cooperation and trust must be established directly between the doctor, staff, and your child and not through you. Your child may become confused if receiving instructions from multiple sources.

We recommend bringing your baby in for their first dental appointment by their first birthday, or within 6 months of their first tooth appearing (whichever comes first). During this appointment, we will examine your baby’s mouth to track their dental development and discuss age-appropriate dental care.

It’s easy to make appointments to visit our office online or over the phone. Rio Dental sees patients both for checkups and dental emergencies. Using our online scheduler, you can select the location and time slot that works best for you for either type of appointment. If you have any questions regarding our practice, or simply prefer to make your appointment with a live member of staff, please don’t hesitate to call!

Rio Dental Group accepts most PPO insurances. We recommend that new patients and returning patients with new insurance policies reach out to us before their appointment to confirm coverage. Our Fort Worth location also sees patients who are covered by Medicaid and CHIP programs.

We don’t like surprises, either! Our staff is prepared to discuss the cost of dental services before you undergo treatment so that you know what to expect in terms of fees. The cost of your services will be due at the end of your appointment. Our office accepts payment by cash, credit card, or check.

Rio Dental Group allows patients to pay with their CareCredit card. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed to cover out-of-pocket costs at over 225,000 providers nationwide. After leaving the office, card holders will be able to make convenient monthly payments towards their balance. To learn more, visit the CareCredit website.
