IMPORTANT

  • If you know the provider by their last name, search by Provider for a Plan. Enter at least a portion of the last name, a location, and use the specialty drop down to choose the type of dental provider to search.
  • If you know the practice name where the provider works, search by Organization for a Plan. Enter at least a portion of the practice (organization) name, a location, and use the specialty drop down to choose the type of dental provider to search.
  • If you do not know the PCP you want to choose, go to Search by Health Plan for an Organization. Select “NC Medicaid Direct” in the Health Plan field, a location, and use the specialty drop down to choose the type of dental provider to search.
  • If you use this option to find a new dentist, you must still call the Medicaid Contact Center or your local DSS office to ask for the change.
