In brief: Possibly

Each state has its own medicaid program with their own rules and regulations.
In many states, children are covered but adults are not.

In brief: Yes, with limits

States are required to provide dental benefits to children covered by Medicaid / Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), but states choose whether to provide dental benefits for adults.
States have flexibility to determine what dental benefits are provided to adult Medicaid enrollees. While most states provide at least emergency dental services for adults, less than half of the states.

In brief: Check with state

Each state mandates what Medicaid covers.
Some allow dentistry only for children. Some only for special needs people and some for anyone receiving Medicaid benefits or payments. You can go tho the local office or contact the agency in your state and ask. Then you'll have to find a dentist that works on Medicaid patients. Just like trying to find an MD who takes Medicaid patients.
