I-Smile™ works to:

  • Inform families about the benefits of regular dental care.
  • Encourage children to begin dental care by age one.
  • Identify dentists accepting Iowa Medicaid coverage.
  • Help families find dental coverage & discounts.
  • Connect families to dentists.

Why are these services important?

Healthy teeth help children talk, eat, and smile with confidence. Healthy habits begin early. Once the first tooth erupts or by age one, children should visit a dentist.

How do I contact I-Smile™?
