How do I become a DentaQuest member?

If you are now eligible to participate in the CHIP or Medicaid plan, you are being asked to pick a dental plan for your children. If you don’t pick a dental plan, one will be picked for you. Find out how to choose DentaQuest.

Once you enroll, you’ll be given the name and phone number of a dentist near your home. This dentist will be your Main Dentist responsible for the dental care of your children. This is the dentist your family will see for care and regular checkups.
