Teledentistry Service: Emergency Care For Dental Members

Emergency rooms aren’t typically equipped to handle dental emergencies.

To help members who experience a dental issue after hours, Arkansas Blue Cross and Blue Shield dental plans now include virtual dental visits through

Members who have a serious dental emergency and can’t contact their dentist can get care 24/7 from a licensed dentist anywhere in the U.S. — at no extra cost! This service is available to all Arkansas Blue Cross dental plan members, including Medicare Advantage members whose plan includes dental coverage.

Teledentistry is a convenient option when you:

  • Need dental care after hours
  • Must consult a dentist without leaving home or while traveling

Whether you’re close to home or anywhere in the U.S., you’ll be connected to a dentist — via videoconference using a phone, tablet or computer — who’ll help resolve the problem and write prescriptions if necessary. The dentist can refer you to a participating dentist near you or your regular dentist for further care as needed.

If you have an Arkansas Blue Cross dental plan and need emergency dental care, visit or call 866-256-1871 to start your virtual visit.
