Tennessee has made a commitment to promoting good health in children from birth until age 21. It's called the TENNderCARE program.

TENNderCARE is a full program of checkups and health care services for children who have TennCare. These services make sure that babies, children, teens, and young adults receive the health care they need. Good health begins at birth, so it's important to Check In, Check Up and Check Back!

On October 1, 2013, DentaQuest became the dental benefits manager for TennCare members under the age of 21.What does this change mean for you? It means that, if you have questions, you should call DentaQuest's customer service line at 1-855-418-1622.
