Did you know that men are more prone to oral health issues than women? According to the American Dental Association, men aged 30-54 are one-third more likely to suffer from gum disease than women of the same age, and this risk increases with age. Regular dental check-ups are essential for maintaining overall health, as they help prevent serious conditions such as gum disease, tooth decay, and oral cancers.

The good news is that Medi-Cal members under 21 are covered for two dental visits per year, and members 21 and over are covered for one visit per year. To view a full list of free Medi-Cal Dental covered services, visit SmileCalifornia.org/Covered-Services.
