Medi-Cal offers free or low-cost dental care for eligible California residents. A third of adults and half of all children in California are enrolled in the program, which provides up to $1800 in covered services per individual each year. As a Medi-Cal member, your coverage and your child’s coverage automatically come with dental benefits at little or no cost to you.
Medi-Cal Dental Plan coverage includes a comprehensive assortment of services, including regular cleanings, checkups and major restorative work. You only need to provide your Medi-Cal Benefits Identification Card (BIC) to your Medi-Cal Dental Plan provider to receive a full spectrum of diagnostic, preventative and restorative dental services.
For adults meeting eligibility requirements, the Medi-Cal Dental Plan provides benefits for the following:

There may be certain limitations and restrictions for some services. Your dentist can tell you which services are and aren’t covered by the Medi-Cal Dental Plan. Your dentist can also help you decide the best treatment and what services you can and should have under the Medi-Cal program. For a complete list of benefits and available services, view this resource from Medi-Cal.
You won’t have to pay for services included in the program’s scope of benefits unless you have Medi-Cal coverage with a shared cost. Once your dentist confirms you are eligible for Medi-Cal services, he or she can only ask you to pay any share of cost or copayment amount you may owe. You can learn more about your potential share of cost in the “My Medi-Cal” booklet you receive when you join the program. You can also learn more about the services covered by the Medi-Cal Dental Plan programs by visiting www.smilecalifornia.org.
