Attention Moms! Changes have been made to the way your children are receiving their Medicaid Dental Benefits…
As your Main Dentist, Summit Dental Center is committed to keeping you and your family smiling! That’s why we’re here to help you understand the changes that are coming to your Medicaid Dental Program in Texas.
You have received a packet in the mail from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.
This letter is letting you know that you will now need to choose a “Dental Plan” along with choosing your “Main Dentist“. These Dental Plans will provide you with a network of dentists and dental clinics that are set-up to take care of your family’s teeth and oral health care needs.
All Texas Dental Medicaid beneficiaries from age 6 months to 20 years will be enrolled in one of three networks that will provide their dental care. The three dental care plans that you can choose from are: DentaQuest, Delta Dental, MCNA.
Because Summit Dental Center is a member of all three, you and your family will always have access to any of our 7 convenient Greater Houston area locations. The Dental Plan Provider you select will be in charge of keeping track of your dental care needs, working with us to make sure that you and your family receive the best dental care possible!
After you’ve decided which Dental Plan works best for you, it’s time to pick a Main Dentist.
But what is a Main Dentist?
A Main Dentist is your choice of a Dental Office or Specific Dentist you and your family prefer to go to for all of your oral health care needs. We would be honored if you would select Summit Dental Center for yourself and your children’s Oral Health Care.
At Summit Dental Center we take pride in getting to know your child’s teeth and dental history. We make sure to provide you with the most comprehensive care available. We also make sure we get your child the kind of specialized care and/or referrals they need in difficult cases. We understand your children’s teeth are not only important for a great smile but promote a positive attitude and confident childhood development.
When choosing a Main Dentist it’s important to do your research! Make sure they can provide everything for you that we do at Summit Dental Center from: The latest state of the art equipment and well trained staff for teeth cleaning, digital x-rays, root canals, braces, sedation dentistry, sealants, stainless steel crowns, fillings, and general dental check-ups.
And The Best Main Dentists are the ones that track the health of your children’s teeth, giving you reminders of when to bring your child back in for check-up’s, providing a fun atmosphere with kids playrooms, flat screen TV’s, modern and clean facilities, hard wood floors with a comfortable décor, and of course we always encourage you to be in the room with your child to make sure their experience is a positive one. We always want your child to leave with a smile so we provide goodie bags and balloons to ensure they want to come back and visit our kind and friendly staff!
