When dental insurance isn’t an option for your children, it’s important to look for a dentist office that has a variety of payment options.
One option at Kool Smiles is CareCredit—one of the largest health, wellness, and beauty credit cards in the United States. It allows you to make monthly payments on the treatments your children need.
Medicaid and SCHIP are other options for affordable dental care. Both cover general dental exams and procedures for children.
You can learn all about Medicaid and SCHIP benefits in your state by visiting the Medicaid website.
Some dentists will also accept cash and credit card payments. If you can find an affordable dentist for your kids, this may be the hassle-free option that best fits your family.
If any of these options sound like a good plan for your kids, come to Kool Smiles. While we do accept most major insurance plans, we also take these other methods of payment for our patients without dental insurance.
Every Kool Smiles location accepts CareCredit, and we’ll even help you enroll when you come to one of our offices. All of our offices also accept Medicaid, TRICARE, SCHIP, and cash or credit card payments.
Our dentistry is built on the idea that all kids deserve to receive quality dental care, even if they don’t have insurance. For more information about our services and payment options, give us a call today.
