Frequently Asked Questions:
- 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 either of Desert Dental Groups offices to receive care.
- 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. Desert Dental Group welcomes family members of every age in our offices, and can refer you to one of our 24 affiliated pediatric-only offices.
- 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 Desert Dental Group created a supplemental coverage specifically for Medi-Cal beneficiaries. It offers greatly reduced co-payments on treatments that Medi-Cal does not include.
