Parents of uninsured children who are not covered by Medicaid can apply for dental benefits through MIChild. The program is open to Michigan residents who meet basic requirements, including income. Applications can be filed at any time and eligibility generally begins the first day of the month following acceptance. Applications and detailed requirements are available on the MDCH website or by calling (888) 988-6300.
MIChild enrollees who select Delta Dental must go to a Michigan dentist who participates with Delta Dental and the MIChild program. Use the MIChild dentist directory to find a dentist near you.
MIChild Dentists: Once accepted, the child is enrolled in MIChild for one year (unless the State is notified that the family no longer is eligible). After one year, the family must reapply. Please check the eligibility of every MIChild patient before treatment.
