Emergency Dental Care—Whenever and Wherever You Need It

BlueDental PPO and Florida Blue Medicare plans now include virtual dental visits* at at no added cost.

An easy, convenient and affordable option for emergency dental care

Emergency rooms are not typically equipped to handle dental emergencies. If you have a serious and/or painful dental issue and you can’t contact your dentist, you now have 24/7 access to a licensed dentist near you—whether you’re close to home or anywhere in the U.S. You can also contact a dentist if you:

  • Have a dental emergency but don’t have a dentist
  • Need to consult with a dentist without leaving your home
  • Have a dental emergency while on vacation, on business or away from home

This valuable benefit can save you both time and money.

How to get started

  1. Visit or call (866) 256-1871. You’ll need to provide your member ID number—you can find it on your dental ID card or in the Florida Blue mobile app (iOS, Android).
  2. Take photos of the problem area, if necessary.
  3. You’ll be connected to a dentist and receive an emergency dental consultation.

If necessary, your virtual dentist will write prescriptions or refer you a participating dentist near you or your regular dentist for further care as needed.

*Limit two visits per calendar year. Virtual visits count toward your plan’s annual maximum. This service is not included for BlueDental Care prepaid plans.
