Dental Visits

  • Children should visit the dentist twice a year for a routine cleaning and dental examination. However, your dentist may want to see you or your child more or less often. It is best to follow their guidance. 

  • Let your dentist know if you or your child has a medical condition or is taking medication.

  • If your child has bleeding gums that continue longer than 2 weeks, see the dentist.

  • To find a dentist who takes Medicaid, see Maryland Healthy Smiles
