Your Trusted Dentist Accepts SoonerCare
Families who are eligible for SoonerCare are eligible to receive a number of dental treatments and services for free or heavily discounted. These are the treatments that promote better oral health and wellness over a lifetime -- and Dr. Ali Torabi works to ensure all Oklahomans can enjoy more affordable dental care by accepting SoonerCare!
If your loved ones are covered by Oklahoma’s Medicaid program, we are pleased to offer high quality dentistry at a price that won’t stretch your budget to its limits. Keep reading to find out more about what that means, and how it benefits you and your family.
SoonerCare is Oklahoma’s Medicaid program jointly funded by the federal and state government. It covers the medical and dental costs for patients of all ages. Both children and adults are eligible for dental care, with kids’ benefits being more comprehensive. In 2007, SoonerCare was expanded to include pregnant women. Not only is it completely safe to visit the dentist when you are pregnant, it is highly advised for the health of mother and baby.
What Treatments Does SoonerCare Cover?
SoonerCare pays for preventive, diagnostic, and restorative dental services for eligible child and adolescent members under the age of 21. Those services include everything from checkups and cleanings to x-rays, fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and necessary treatments like fillings and root canals that rescued decayed or ailing teeth.
For patients over the age of 21, SoonerCare’s coverage is not as complete, but you are still covered for limited exams, limited x-rays, and emergency extractions.
Elective procedures like cosmetic treatments, orthodontics, and other specialty services, therapies, and treatments are not covered by SoonerCare.
