Dental Care Levels for CSHCN

In collaboration with local providers, the Medical Home Portal developed this list of levels of severity of children and youth with special health care needs (CYSHCN). All dentists in Utah were provided with a survey and asked to identify the types of CYSHCN that they were comfortable treating by choosing one of the listed levels. The dental care providers that are listed in our database responded to the survey and gave permission to be listed. Please contact the individual dental care provider for more information about provided services and accepted insurance plans.

  • Mild developmental delays
  • No wheelchair, oxygen, or essential medical equipment
  • Mild behavior problems or mental health issues
