Among adults with Medicaid, use of dental services is higher in states with extensive dental coverage. Meanwhile, service use among children varies substantially by state, even though all state Medicaid programs are required to cover their dental services. Overall, Medicaid enrollees have low rates of dental service use, which could indicate barriers to care, such as a lack of available dental providers in general or that accept Medicaid.
