I'm looking for an orthodontist that accepts medicaid for my son. We live in Bremerton, Washington.(Kitsap County) but will go wherever we can. I've checked with every ortho in the phone book, and surrounding counties and checked with the medicaid hotline in Olympia and so far, nothing. Thanks.

I work for the Dept. of Social Services in NC. Here is the website link for all of the NC people who are looking for Dentist/Orthodontist in NC. If there are any others missing, I'm sure you can locate them based on the cities. Hope this helps the NC people.
**** Also for those of you in other states, check with your local Department that issues these benefits or check the state website that has the information for these benefits.
Thanks a bunch for the info, it's a really informative site, I recommend it to anyone looking for a dentist, oral surgeon, or orthodontist, there's 14 pages of offices that accept medicaid.

My son has been approved to get brace through medicaid in Georgia. The only catch have to be determined by a dentist that it is a health issue. Not sure what my sons was but his pallet (the top of your mouth) goes norrow, so maybe that has something to do with it. There is a orthodontic in Hapeville, Ga that takes medicaid and will try to get you approved for them but it took us 6 months or more to get the approval. Good Luck to all of you!!!!
