The Coronavirus, COVID-19 has redefined the world and has impacted every trade and profession. There have been severe impacts on Dentistry too. As a result of the impacts, most dental offices have stopped accepting MassHealth. The PPE cost is so high that dentists are being selective on the procedures and the insurance they accept. Smiley Dental wants to serve the community as a result we continue to accept all insurances including MassHealth.

MassHealth Services for Adults Over 21

Adults over 21 who have an active MassHealth are eligible for a variety of different benefits. The most frequently used is a routine 6 months visit to a dentist for cleaning, x-ray and exam.
