New Information on Dental Care Benefits for Pregnant Women in Virginia

Starting in March 2015, Gov. Terry McAuliffe’s action plan, A Healthy Virginia, will provide comprehensive dental care to low-income pregnant women. Following the announcement of this plan, the Virginia Department of Medical Assistance Services (DMAS), DentaQuest, and Smiles for Life published resources to help providers and patients better understand the importance of oral health and the dental benefits available to pregnant women enrolled in Medicaid and FAMIS MOMS.
