New Adult Dental Benefit for 750,000 Virginians

Allyn HodginsUncategorized

Adults with full Medicaid benefits in Virginia now have access to more dental services and provider choices through DentaQuest. The new benefit began July 1, 2021. Covered dental services for adult Medicaid members with full benefits include:

  • Cleanings, X-rays and exams
  • Fillings and root canals
  • Dentures
  • Gum-related treatment
  • Oral surgeries
  •  And more! 

Children and pregnant individuals enrolled in Medicaid, FAMIS or FAMIS MOMS will continue to receive comprehensive dental coverage.  Members can check with their existing dentists to see if they accept Medicaid or find a dentist.

Providers who are currently credentialed with Smiles For Children do not need to submit any additional enrollment or credentialing paperwork to begin serving Medicaid adults. 

If you are not credentialed with DentaQuest, call 1-888-912-3456.  Providers should refer to the Office Reference Manual (ORM) for a list of covered dental services.  The updated ORM is available on DentaQuest’s provider web portal at
