Take 5 pledge helping dentists engage with Colorado’s adult dental Medicaid program

Click to Join Take 5Next year, 300,000 Colorado adults will qualify for dental coverage through the state’s Medicaid program. Many of these adults—including parents, expectant moms and people with chronic and developmental health conditions—will be looking to access much-needed preventative and restorative dental care.

Colorado’s dentists need to be ready to care for these patients. The CDA took a leadership role in increasing Medicaid coverage. Through the CDA’s Take 5 program, dentists can further their commitment to helping address the oral health needs of our state.



Take 5 Program

The CDA’s Take 5 pledge calls on member dentists to accept a minimum of five Medicaid patients or families into their practice. The program is designed to make it possible for every CDA member to participate, do their part and commit at a level that works best for their practice.

The CDA will provide resources and support to members who take the pledge—with the goal of making participation in Medicaid as simple and efficient as possible. As the rules for the adult program come together, Take 5 dentists will receive updates and information on working with the state Medicaid department and learn best practices for integrating patients into their practices.
