Dental care coverage can be obtained from a variety of sources depending on income. Florida Medicaid and Healthy Kids are public programs which serve eligible children. In Florida, families can buy into Healthy Kids coverage for children ages 5 to 19 and to MediKids coverage for children ages 1 to 4. For those buying private insurance, the Affordable Care Act requires that dental coverage for children be offered but purchasing is optional, so be sure to look closely at what a plan covers.
