Partnership Opportunity: Community Health Center

Could your Community Health Center benefit from the quality service and atmosphere of a Kool Smiles Dental office? We´re interested in partnering with health centers to bring dental facilities on-site and manage them through our rigorous quality and compliance programs.

Benefits to Community Health Centers

Partnering with Kool Smiles offers a number of benefits to a Community Health Center, including:

  • Allowing the CHC to meet and exceed federal requirements for dental services while focusing resources on medical and mental health services.
  • Underutilized space becomes a revenue opportunity through a lease with Kool Smiles.
  • Increased community visibility through partnered marketing programs, which can include community educators, flyers, direct mail and potentially broadcast media.
  • Higher patient volumes as we share and refer patients towards a lifetime of great oral and overall health!

In June of 2010 Kool Smiles opened its first Community Health Center location in Gary, IN (Community HealthNet).  Here Kool Smiles increased capacity from four to six dental chairs, installed new digital x-ray equipment and practice management system, added a TV and children’s play area to the common lobby, and remodeled the dental space and a portion of the lobby.  Once Kool Smiles opened we were able to increase the dental patient volume at the center by 88% in only three months. The office is viewed as a success by both Kool Smiles, the Community HealthNet and legislators in Indiana. All parties have promised to move ahead with additional partnerships in the near future. Our first partnership with a Community Health Center began in June 2010 to serve the residents of Gary, Indiana. Read the story "Smile Gary, Smile" here. You can also read about the legislative support in the NBCSL December 2010 newsletter (PDF in new window) here

If you´re interested in creating a partnership with Kool Smiles for your health facility, just visit our community inquiry form and one of our professionals will contact you to learn more.

“The Gary model has proved to be a rousing success. For members of NBCSL and other leaders, this is a model that can be emulated and adjusted to fit other locations and circumstances around the country.”

Rep. Charlie Brown

State representative from Indiana, chairman of Indiana's House Public Health Committee

“With Kool Smiles we get a lift to our medical patient volume, are able to focus our energy on growing our medical practice, and have additional income we can reinvest into new services”  

Dr. Janet Seabrook

CEO of Community HealthNet, Gary IN

  • Looking for a general dentist who will see your children?

    Try Kool Smiles!

    Kool Smiles was founded in 2002 and was built on the belief that every family has the right to quality dental care in a clean, safe and fun environment. Our first goal is to provide quality and compliant dental care to individuals in communities that typically get overlooked by general dentists. Our services are not just for kids, but since we know children are more likely to have great dental habits if mom and dad do too, we happily care for the entire family.

  • Does Kool Smiles have general dentists that accept Medicaid?

    Yes, all Kool Smiles general dentists accept Medicaid.

    While very few dentistry practices accept Medicaid as a payment option, Kool Smiles, in adherence with its mission to provide quality dental care to underserved children and their parents, proudly accepts Medicaid in every location. To find a participating Kool Smiles general dentist near you, please search for a dentist close to you, or call us today at 1-855-223-KOOL.

  • What is Medicaid and how can I find a general dentist who accepts Medicaid?

    Access to healthcare for millions of Americans

    Medicaid is a government program that provides access to healthcare for millions of Americans who would otherwise be uninsured. Medicaid also provides for dental coverage at varying levels for children and adults. Each state regulates its own Medicaid program in conjunction with the federal government. Unfortunately not many dentists take Medicaid as a payment option or restrict the number of patients they will see. This limits the choices an individual has to see an approved Medicaid dentist. Kool Smiles is unlike most dentists and welcomes all patients, including those with Medicaid coverage.

  • What makes Kool Smiles different from other general dentists who see kids?

    It is our mission to provide high quality dental care in a safe, fun and friendly environment.

    Our offices have been built with families in mind. Our offices feature spacious waiting rooms with a play area for children and most offices feature semi-private treatment areas for adults. We have a fun décor, staff who has been trained to help our young patients, and a desire to make sure all patients receive the dental care they deserve.

  • Does Medicaid cover my child's cost when I go to a participating general dentist?

    Typically Medicaid will cover any recipient under the age of 21.

    Details of what is covered for pediatric dental and adult oral health care varies from state to state. However, coverage typically includes dental pain relief, dental hygiene or teeth cleanings, addressing infections and tooth restorations. For a complete list of services covered in your state, just call us and we'll help you understand your Medicaid dental benefits.
