Dental check-ups are important to your child’s health. They help stop cavities and gum disease. Take these steps to help your child have a healthy smile:

  • Limit Snacks
  • Do not put small children to bed with a bottle of milk or juice
  • Make sure they brush their teeth twice a day
  • Make sure they get check-ups every six months by a dentist
  • Visits to the dentist should start as soon as the first tooth comes in or at six months of age

Call your dentist to make an appointment. If you want to talk to someone about check-ups, please call our Member Services department and ask to speak with a Health Check Coordinator. We can be reached at (800) 704-1484. If you are hearing impaired call TTY/TDD at (800) 659-7487
