Dental Benefits for Adult Medicaid Enrollees

Routine and emergency dental care are safe during pregnancy and improved oral health can lead to better health outcomes for both mother and baby.

All adult TennCare enrollees now have dental benefits. Adult pregnant and postpartum enrollees will receive the same benefits and coverage as all adult members, as of January 1, 2023. Adult enrollees will be able to see a dentist at no cost to them for all medically necessary, covered dental services, which consist of regular exams, x-rays, cleanings, fillings, crowns, and more.

The list of covered procedure codes and additional information regarding the adult dental benefit is available on TennCare’s Dental Services page.
