- And many more
Do I need a referral from my Primary Doctor to see a dentist?
No. You do not need a referral to see a dentist. Once you choose a Healthfirst NJ dentist, just call his or her office to make an appointment.
Which dentists can I see?
DentaQuest uses an “open network.” This means you can select and visit any dentist that takes Healthfirst NJ or DentaQuest.
When you visit your dentist, you should show your Healthfirst NJ ID card. You will not receive a separate dental card.
I still have questions about dentists and dental care. Who can I talk to?
DentaQuest representatives can help you if you need to:
- Find a dentist;
- Change your dentist; or
- Ask additional questions about your dental coverage.
Please call DentaQuest at 1-800-508-2047, Monday - Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Just like Healthfirst NJ, you can ask to talk to a DentaQuest representative that speaks your language.
