Mobile encourages all eligible individuals to utilize the Denti-Cal and Healthy
Families programs, which have been designed to make dental care affordable and
accessible to everyone. Thousands of eligible Californians are not taking advantage
of no-cost or low-cost (as affordable as $4 per month per child) health coverage
programs. Tooth Mobile helps enroll eligible individuals in these programs and
attends outreach events statewide.
Denti-Cal is the dental portion of the Medi-Cal
Health Coverage Program. Any individual who is eligible for Medi-Cal is also eligible
for Denti-Cal. For services provided in a dentist's office, there is a co-payment
of $1. For non-urgent care provided in the emergency room, the co-payment is $5.
Families provides medical, dental and vision coverage to eligible children who
do not qualify for no-cost Medi-Cal. The monthly premium ranges from $4-9 per
month per child, up to a maximum fee of $27.
As part of our efforts, Tooth
Mobile offers eligibility information and enrollment forms for both programs,
which you can access by clicking on the links below. If you need any help completing

Certified Application Assistant will guide you through the process. You can also
