Dental Depot Accepts SoonerCare!
Dental Depot is committed to meeting the dental needs of Oklahomans across the state. That’s why we’re proud to accept SoonerCare, also known as Medicaid, at all of our Dental Depot locations. With nearly 800,000 of our friends and neighbors relying on SoonerCare to meet their medical and dental needs, it’s no wonder so many patients choose Dental Depot as their dental provider.
What is SoonerCare?
SoonerCare is a health coverage program jointly funded by the state and federal government that helps pay some or all medical bills for many people who can’t afford them. SoonerCare benefits may include doctor visits, hospitalization, prescriptions and even dental care. In fact, 20% of Oklahomans are enrolled in SoonerCare – two thirds of which are children.
Who can benefit from SoonerCare?
SoonerCare exists to care for people who need it most. You may qualify for SonnerCare if you are:
- A U.S. citizen or certain qualified noncitizen, such as lawful permanent resident
- A resident of Oklahoma – What if I am not a resident?
- Within the income standards

What dental benefits are available to children with SoonerCare?
SoonerCare classifies children as enrollees who are under age 21. Children can receive a number of different treatment options, with a focus on preventative care. Many services are available to children, although some services require a preauthorization from SoonerCare. Services to children include:
- Dental sealants
- Stainless steel crowns for primary teeth,
- Space maintainers,
While SoonerCare pays for most services deemed necessary by providers, preauthorizations are required for many services before treatment. If you have questions or would like to schedule an appointment, give us a call or request an appointment online
