Your Dental Home

As a CHP+ member, you have a Dental Home. A Dental Home is where you go to see a dentist every six months. This dentist will provide any needed oral health care for you.

Your Dental Home will work with you so you can stay healthy. It is important to go back to the same Dental Home for each appointment.

Your Dental Home will provide:

  • Complete dental care
  • A dental health plan designed for you
  • Guidance about diet and growth
  • Information on how to correctly care for your teeth

Healthy teeth and gums are an important part of overall health. For a healthier life, have regular checkups - every six months. Children should see the dentist starting at age one.

So don't wait! Create a member portal account to access your dental home and more.
