Children receiving dental care in the last year

This indicator reflects the percentage of children (aged 0-20 years) enrolled in Medicaid (320+ days) who received at least one dental visit during the past year. Poor oral health can lead to problems with nutrition, growth, school and workplace readiness, and speech. Adoption and use of recommended oral hygiene measures are critical to maintaining overall health.

Data Details

  • Source Maryland Medicaid Service Utilization
    Numerator Children aged 0 to 12 and 13 to 20 years in the fee-for-service (FFS) Medicaid or full HealthChoice managed care organization (MCO) programs. Enrollees in the following coverage groups were excluded from the analysis: undocumented immigrants (X02), Breast and Cervical Screening Program (W01), and Family Planning Program (P10). Individuals enrolled in the Primary Adult Care (PAC) program (S09) were also excluded because dental services are not a required benefit for these enrollees.
    Denominator Children who had at least one dental visit during the measurement year. Dental visits were identified by FFS claims in the Medicaid Management Information System (MMIS2). For these measures, a dental visit is defined as one unique contact between a provider and an enrollee that may not exceed one per day.
