Jan. 1, 2018, adults enrolled in the Denti-Cal
program (California’s Medi-Cal Dental program) are eligible for an expanded set
of dental benefits. In November 2017, the Department of Health Care Services
issued a special
provider bulletin to clarify the dental services that providers may
render, bill and be reimbursed for by Denti-Cal in 2018, including scaling and
root planing, partial dentures and posterior root canals.
