Dental Care

Back To Programs and Services

B – UFC/ACC members ages 20 and younger are assigned to a Dental Home, also known as a Primary Dental Provider (PDP). A Dental Home is a dentist's office that is visited every six months for a check-up.

All dental health checkups, cleanings and treatments are covered for B – UFC/ACC members ages 20 and younger.

Children do not need to be referred by his/her PCP to see a dentist.

At 12 months of age, children should begin to see a dentist for a checkup every six months. B – UFC/ACC sends dental checkup reminders. Dentists can help prevent cavities. They can use dental sealants (a coating painted on the back teeth) and fluoride treatments. Dentists also teach you and your child how to care for teeth. It is important for your child to go to the dentist every six months.

Look in the B – UFC/ACC Dental Provider Directory to choose a dental clinic near you or call our Customer Care Center for help scheduling a visit. Use these guidelines for scheduling appointments for your child:

  • Emergency dental appointments – same day appointments for extreme pain and dental emergencies.
  • Urgent dental appointments – within 3 days for lost fillings, broken tooth.
  • Routine dental appointments – within 45 days for routine checkups and dental cleanings.
  • Make sure you take your child’s B – UFC/ACC Member ID card with you to the dental appointment.  
  • Any member aged 21 years and older can only receive emergency dental services if you have a need for care immediately, like a bad infection in your mouth or pain in your teeth or jaw.

Pre-transplantation members may also get treatment for oral infections, oral disease, periodontal disease, medically necessary extractions, and simple restorations like a filling or crown. Call our Customer Care Center to see if you have been approved for your transplant before you seek dental care.
