My daughter is seeing Dr. Stewart in Newnan, Ga. She is on medicaid. Dr. Stewart is great. He was my orthodontist when I was a teen. I hope this helps.
call cms in rome, ga.- childrens medical services - look up on internet, or call health dept. in your area, they have list of providers for different areas in ga.- you have to do a once a yr. review w/ cms at your local health dept. my son had jaw bone deformity - and they paid for braces and retainers until 21.- ga. medicaid pd. for cleaning, x-rays, fillings, temp caps, flouride, sealants until 21, after 21 all you get is extractions.

I live outside Sringfield MO.... There is only one orthodontist in the state, Michael Schultz in Kansas City who you can see. You have to be referred by your regular dentist and the child has to have been receiving regular visits with the referring dentist. If referred you go to Kansas City for x-rays, impressions, pictures which are sent to Jeff City where the "State Orthodontist" makes the decision. It has to qualify as a disabling problem and not just for looks. I take my daughter on the 6th of January. Good luck.
