Most disabled children have their health insurance through the Maryland Medicaid Program.
Indeed, about 20 percent of Maryland children are covered by Medicaid, the government program that provides health care for the economically disadvantaged. Along with the University of Maryland Dental School, Kernan Dental Service is one of the largest providers of dental care for the Maryland Medicaid Program. Our staff of pediatric dentists is able to extend care to disabled children who would otherwise have difficulty accessing specialized care in the community.
The staff includes general and pediatric dentists, hygienists, dental assistants, business and clerical support. Our team includes fellows and residents in pediatric dentistry from the University of Maryland Dental School.
