How our North Carolina Medicaid process works

  • Book a Consultation

    North Carolina Medicaid guidelines require you to have an initial consultation before we can begin making your denture or partial. That way, we can get prior authorization on your behalf. To schedule your initial consultation select “North Carolina Medicaid Appointments,” from the booking menu and then choose the best day and time for your appointment:  Click here to make an appointment

  • We Obtain Authorization

    After your initial consultation, we will send your treatment plan to North Carolina Medicaid for review and approval. This review process can take up to three weeks and may involve additional appointments if Medicaid needs us to submit additional information.

  • You Get Your Smile Back

    Once North Carolina Medicaid approves your treatment plan, we will call you to schedule a follow up appointment. At this appointment, we will extract your teeth and place your denture or partial. If you want to get same day service at your follow up appointment, you will need to be in our office by 7:30 am.

Frequently Asked Questions

What type of services will Medicaid pay for?

Our office offers the following Medicaid approved services:

  • Extractions
  • Dentures
  • Partials
  • Relines
  • Repairs

North Carolina Medicaid covers the full cost of these services on behalf of its beneficiaries.

Can I get same day service if I use Medicaid?

Yes! But, only after we obtain prior approval from North Carolina Medicaid. Therefore, any of our Medicaid patients are welcome to get their dentures or partials in the same day once North Carolina Medicaid approves their request for service. 

What types of North Carolina Medicaid do you accept?

We accept any type of North Carolina Medicaid that covers dental services.

Please note, if you have North Carolina Medicaid for Family Planning Services, we will not be able to treat you because North Carolina Medicaid Policy says that Family Planning Medicaid “does not cover [a]ny specialty health care services not related to family planning services (including dental, mammography, cardiology, physical therapy, neurology, radiology, behavior health services).”

Do I need to bring my North Carolina Medicaid card to my appointments?

Yes, you will need to bring your North Carolina Medicaid card with you to both your initial consultation and any follow up appointments.

North Carolina Medicaid denied my request for services. Now what?

In certain cases, North Carolina Medicaid will deny a request for services if a patient has received a denture or partial in the last 8-10 years. If your request is denied, you are welcome to use our payment plans to cover the cost of your treatment.
