Pediatric dental and vision benefits


Dental care for children

Dental coverage is an essential health benefit for children.

Preventive care services* for eligible dependents includes services like:

  • Cleanings
  • Dental sealant treatments
  • Oral examinations
  • Topical fluoride treatments
  • X-rays
  • And more

*Please see your DeltaCare® USA Plan Schedule of Benefits for the covered benefits and cost sharing information for pediatric dental benefits included with your plan. Dental schedules are also available on Sharp Connect.

Verify your coverage

Before you begin accessing care, it’s important to verify your coverage. If you are enrolled in an individual and family plan through Sharp Health Plan or through Covered California, or through certain employer groups, then your plan will include pediatric dental benefits. To verify your coverage, please review your Member Handbook.

Enrolled through your employer?

Employers may offer dental benefits that are not through Sharp Health Plan. Some may even offer dental benefits for you and your adult dependents too. Check with your human resources department to see what they may offer.

Enrolled in a Sharp Direct Advantage® Medicare plan?

If you are a Medicare Advantage member, please visit Sharp Direct Advantage to learn more about your dental benefits.

Find a pediatric dental provider

Delta Dental will automatically assign your eligible dependents a primary care dentist — this is to ensure that they can begin accessing care right away. You can change your primary care dentist at any time online or over the phone. Changes requested before the 15th of the month will be effective the first day of the following month.
