Oklahoma Medicaid is sending letters to all Medicaid recipients advising of this expanded State Plan benefit and clarifying there will be no co-pay for dental services. In general, coverage includes Preventive Services (dental cleanings and fluoride), Restorative Services (silver and tooth-colored fillings), Full and Partial Dentures and Extractions. Items not covered under the expanded benefit include root canals and crowns.
