Preparing for Your Visit
Bring a list of your current medications (or the bottles) so your Care Team can review them.
Think about what you need to tell your provider (symptoms, tests, other provider visits, hospitalizations) and what questions you want answered.
For children’s appointments, bring your child’s immunization records.
You are welcome to bring a companion with you to your visit.
If you are hard of hearing or have limited vision, a physical impairment, or other special need let them know so that they can assist you.
Dental care is covered under Medi-Cal, referred to as Denti-Cal. It pays for regular check-ups, cleanings, root canals (some), extractions, dentures, periodontal disease, and emergency services.
So what’s the problem?
No provider in the immediate area is accepting new adult patients.
Uh....But what about my teeth?
Burre Dental Center, located at 959 Myrtle Avenue in Eureka, takes TWO adult emergency patients per day. You must call at 8:00AM on the day you want to go (707-442-7078). Remember, they only take two emergency patients per day. If you wait until 8:03AM to call, it’s likely that you will not be one of those two. This is only for emergency services (infections and/or tooth pain). Be prepared to wait for at least five hours. This is a work-in appointment.
The only provider accepting new adult patients in Humboldt County is Southern Trinity Health Services, 321 Van Duzen Road, Mad River, CA. 707-574-6616.
There are several providers accepting new adult patients in the Redding and Santa Rosa areas. You can search Denti-cal’s website for providers accepting new adult patients at www.denti-cal.ca.gov/find-a-dentist/home. You can get a copy of the beneficiary handbook at www.denti-cal.ca.gov/DC_documents/beneficiaries/DC_beneficiary_handbook.pdf.
Medi-Cal will pay for transportation to Redding or Santa Rosa for a dental or medical appointment. Call 866-828-2303 to arrange such once you have an appointment with a provider.
