The dentist is coming to our school! The School Smiles on-site dental program provides on-site dental care at our school for ALL students that signup to participate. The dental team will set up inside our school and they accept Medicaid, private insurance, offer self-pay rates and grants through their foundation. We do accept the following insurance plans so that anyone and everyone that wants to signup can and can be seen: Medicaid: if they have Medicaid it is covered at 100%, the patient is never billed Private Insurance: we accept these plans just like any private practice and legally have to try to collect if their plan has a copay or deductible—we are up front when they signup if they have any amounts that could apply and if they tell us they can’t afford it or doesn’t end up paying then we write off that balance and will still see the patient. Self-Pay option: we include the discounted rate of only $49 and includes their cleaning, x-rays, prophy, fluoride and sealants. It is the parent’s choice to choose this option and we leave it available because we do have some families that prefer to pay vs having the grant option. Grant Foundation: If the family does not have dental insurance and they check this box then their visit is covered at 100% by our program and they are never billed for any services. If they don’t have insurance, we do need them to check either the self-pay box or the grant box so that we know how to proceed as we can’t choose for them.
