Medicaid / CHIP
In the state of Texas, a new Medicaid and CHIP enrollment program began in late 2011 and ended on Feb. 10, 2012. If you enrolled your children during that period, they should now have a “Main Dentist” where they will get all their dental benefits. If you did not request a “Main Dentist”, and you were assigned one through the program, that will be where your children will get their benefits.
However, if you would like your children seen at our dental office as their “Main Dentist,” you can simply call the dental plan you were assigned to (DentaQuest or MCNA) at one of the following numbers, and give them the Smilepoint Dentists office phone number. You can get all that information quickly and easily by following Instructions below.
