Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Do I need to enroll in Medi-Cal Dental benefits?
If you have Medi-Cal, you are already automatically enrolled in the Medi-Cal Dental benefits program also known as Denti-Cal. You can bring in your Medi-Cal card to any Western Dental office to receive care.
2. Are these benefits for Adults or Kids?
The Adult benefits have increased, but Children and Pregnant Women continue to have a full set of Medi-Cal dental benefits. Western Dental welcomes family members of every age in our offices, and can refer you to one of our 24 affiliated pediatric-only offices.
3. Does Medi-Cal cover every treatment?
Even with expanded benefits, there are some dental treatments Medi-Cal does not cover such as bone restoration and implants among others. That is why Western Dental created a supplemental coverage specifically for Medi-Cal beneficiaries. It offers greatly reduced co-payments on treatments that Medi-Cal does not include.
