It is important for kids to visit the dentist, but should parents seek out a dental health center specifically for children instead of a regular dentist who treats all ages? There are advantages to visiting a dental office designed with children in mind.
Kool Smiles, a network of general and pediatric dentists, makes treating children’s dental health issues a top priority. Our focus is to make sure that all children, regardless of insurance, have access to great dental care.
Call us today to make an appointment for your child.
1. Dental centers create an early love for the dentist.
Kids who go to the dentist as children continue to go as adults. Our offices are designed with kids in mind, with brightly-colored waiting rooms with toys to play with. Most of our offices even have a playground for younger children to play on.
2. Dental professionals at Kool Smiles are understanding.
Employees at Kool Smiles treat kids all day. They understand the issues facing children—from their first baby tooth to the growth of their permanent teeth.
Our dentists and hygienists know how to put children at ease with a “tell, show, do” approach. The Kool Experience takes away worry and makes dental visits easy.
3. Regular dental care prevents small problems from becoming big problems.
From early childhood screenings to cleanings, fillings, and orthodontics, children can get the dental care they need at Kool Smiles.
When your kids visit a Kool Smiles office, they’ll find friendly, high-quality dental care that is affordable and convenient.
Kool Smiles has over 120 locations nationwide, and we accept many forms of payment including Medicaid, state-sponsored health insurance plans (SCHIP), TRICARE, and most private health insurance plans.
Your child’s dental health is our top priority, and we’re always accepting new patients. Make an appointment for your children today or enter your city and state or zip code to find your nearest location.
