Get Cheap Dental Work for Your Kids Without Insurance

As the cost of dental care rises, it can be difficult for families to find affordable dental work or a dentist that takes no insurance. But just because you don’t have insurance doesn’t mean your kids have to miss out on quality dental care. 

At Kool Smiles, kids without insurance can still get quality dental care because we offer a variety of payment options, and we accept Medicaid. Call us today to find your nearest Kool Smiles office.

Affordable, Quality Dental Care Is Possible at Kool Smiles

For affordable dental work without insurance, families have a few options:

1. Look into government assistance programs like Medicaid and CHIP.

Children of families that qualify for Medicaid will receive coverage for dental services as part of a wide set of benefits. Medicaid coverage includes pain and infection treatment, teeth restoration, and teeth cleaning. 

States that offer CHIP (the Children’s Health Insurance Program) are required to provide coverage for children’s dental services that are necessary to prevent disease, restore teeth, and treat emergencies.

Not all dentist offices accept Medicaid and CHIP, but Kool Smiles does. We have over 120 locations, and each one accepts both Medicaid and CHIP, and offers other payment options for those without insurance. We also accept most other forms of insurance, including TRICARE.

2. Enroll in a discount plan. 

Dental discount plans are a great way to get affordable dental work for your child when you don’t have insurance. Discount plans can help families get the dental services their children need at a discounted, fixed rate. There typically isn’t any paperwork to fill out and you won’t have to pay a yearly fee or deductible.  

3. Pay with cash or credit. 

Families without insurance can also choose to pay for the care their children receive at Kool Smiles using cash or credit card options. We even accept CareCredit—a health and wellness credit card that allows you to make convenient monthly payments. We’ll help you sign up right in our office.
