Medicaid covers dental services for all child enrollees as part of a comprehensive set of benefits, referred to as the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT) benefit. Dental services for children must minimally include relief of pain and infections, restoration of teeth, and maintenance of dental health. In 2014, there were nearly 716,000 visits to the dentist for children qualifying for Medicaid ages 0-18, representing approximately two visits per pediatric dental patient.
