You might know that having good oral health can help prevent bad breath, cavities, and gum disease—but did you know it can impact your risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and other chronic conditions?

The Smile Check program is available to pregnant women enrolled in Medicaid. The program will provide you with resources and empower you to take control of your oral health and improve overall health.

The program offers dental screenings, fluoride varnish application when needed and available, case management, and oral health education by a registered dental hygienist. Patients have no out of pocket costs for this service.

Your participation will invite a dental health coordinator to contact you to discuss your oral health concerns, resources for treatment, and provide personal oral health counseling.
