Need dental care?

Taking care of your mouth is just as important as taking care of your body. That’s why it’s important to establish a dental home—a place where you develop an ongoing relationship with a dentist. Your dental home can help you create good oral health habits for you and your family, resolve any dental issues you may have and give you a place to go in case of a dental emergency. And importantly—you can access dental care even if you are underinsured, uninsured or have Medicaid.

How else can I keep my mouth healthy?

Even if you see a dentist every six months, taking care of your teeth every day is important:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day.
  • Floss once a day (best at night).
  • Make sure every member of your family has their own toothbrush.
