For emergency dental care, you can see any dentist. They don’t have to be in the network. You don’t need a referral or approval for emergencies.

  • A permanent tooth is knocked out
  • Very bad pain in the gum around a tooth

  • People with special health care needs
  • Children under age 5

If your dentist can’t provide this service, you can call SKYGEN at 1-888-983-4693 (TTY: 1-800-508-6975).
