Our Kool Smiles Kids Club partners have specifically placed dental clinics in underserved areas in order to make dental care accessible for people from all walks of life. We want to bring good dental services and proper oral hygiene education to everyone in the community. This is why we’ve partnered with local schools and organizations to teach children around the Eastpoint area about the importance of good oral hygiene.
To maintain a high standard of quality, all partner dentists are trained professionals approved by the Maryland State Board of Examiners. To best serve their patients, they make sure that their dentists take continuing education courses, as well as additional in-house training from senior staff members.
Their dental services include:
It can be difficult to convince children to go to the dentist. Many children are scared and think that it just isn’t “fun” to visit a dental office. We hope a visit to our partners at Porter Dental changes their mind. They’ve made every adjustment possible to make their practice kid-friendly, while also keeping in mind the needs of the parents.
Their team wants their patients to enjoy their dental visits, and they know that a big part of this is how happy your kids are. This is why they have made their space an appealing environment for children of all ages. They also understand that parents can be busy during the week, which is why their dental office in Eastpoint Mall is open on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm., so you can bring your kids during the weekend instead.
Our partner dentists aim to provide all children with the opportunity to have good oral health. We have partnered with the local community in Eastpoint to facilitate events such as Sharing Smiles Day and Operation Troop Treats to teach children about the importance of oral hygiene and proper dental care practices.
Sharing Smiles Day is a once a year event that allows children from Baltimore with limited coverage or no dental insurance to still receive dental services. During this event, our partner dentists can provide these services at zero cost:
If you are interested in having your child participate in this program, please take note of these important guidelines:
Sharing Smiles Day happens in May of each year. Contact our Eastpoint Mall partner dental office for the exact date and specific information.
Once a year, we create dental care packages for our troops with the help of candy donations from children in the Baltimore area. Each child can trade in 25 pieces of unopened candy in exchange for a toy. We partnered with Operation Gratitude to pack these donated candies along with oral hygiene materials to donate to our U.S troops that are stationed overseas.
The care package includes candy, floss, toothbrushes, and toothpaste. This is a good way to let our troops know that we appreciate their service and also, helps kids prevent tooth decay by lessening their sugar consumption during the Halloween season.
You can contact our partner dental office in Eastpoint to find out when the donation drive happens.
Kool Smile Kids Club partners goal has always been to make dental care accessible to children in Baltimore. Their dentists can help your kids achieve good oral health through proper treatment and education. These practices can give your children healthy teeth and gums throughout their lives.
