Many Americans live in “dental deserts” or areas without enough dentists. This means that parents have to travel to get dental care for their kids, or go without. This is why Kool Smiles opened up over 120 dental offices across the country.
At Kool Smiles, we provide affordable, high-quality dental care to children all over the United States.

Do You Qualify for Medicaid or CHIP?
To determine if you qualify for these programs, it’s best to first understand them.
Medicaid—Medicaid is a state-run program that provides insurance benefits to eligible families. Dental services covered by Medicaid are determined by the state you live in. For most people under the age of 21, Medicaid covers dental care. To see what Medicaid dental coverage your state offers, visit Medicaid.gov or talk to a Medicaid representative.
Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)—CHIP is an insurance program for children under the age of 19. CHIP provides medical and dental insurance to qualifying children, but the services covered vary by state. To find out if your child qualifies for CHIP, visit InsureKidsNow.gov.
