Most FamilyCare Health members with the Oregon Health Plan (OHP) have access to dental care. Getting regular dental care is important to your overall health and can help prevent dental disease and other problems. Many, but not all, dental services are covered.

A dental emergency is a dental problem that needs immediate care. If you have a dental emergency, call your dental provider. If you cannot reach your dental provider, call your dental plan or FamilyCare Health. Dental emergencies include severe toothache, dental pain that keeps you awake and is not relieved by over-the-counter medication, infection in the gums or a tooth, severe swelling of the gums around a tooth, or a tooth that has been knocked out.
