Little Partners℠ dental benefit

Kids’ oral health starts here

You do your best to keep your kids in good health, including good oral health. Healthy dental habits from an early age can mean fewer cavities, fewer missed school days and more smiles to last a lifetime. At HealthPartners, we’re here to make things easier – and more affordable – with our Little Partners dental benefit.

Full coverage for all your child’s in-network dental expenses

Little Partners is a benefit that’s available on many HealthPartners dental plans offered through employers. With Little Partners, kids 12 years old and younger get 100% dental coverage when they see an in-network dentist. That means:
  • No deductible
  • No coinsurance
  • No out-of-pocket expenses
  • No annual benefit maximum
All dental care is covered under Little Partners.

Orthodontic care, like braces, is not covered under Little Partners. This kind of care is subject to your plan’s standard coverage.
