Video: “Take Care of Teeth” (English) — :15 seconds

Dentists and doctors recommend children get a dental check-up every 6 months. Preventive and routine care can help maintain good oral health. Tooth decay, one of the most common chronic diseases among children, can negatively affect a child’s physical and social development. Kids and teens up to age 19 have access to dental care such as check-ups, x-rays, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, fillings, and more through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). This helps kids maintain good overall health! Families without health insurance may be eligible for free or low-cost coverage available through Medicaid or CHIP and they can enroll at any time of the year. Parents may be eligible for Medicaid, too. Visit the “Find Coverage for Your Family” map on or call 1-877-KIDS-NOW (1-877-543-7669) to learn more.
