With 30% of children afraid of the dentist, and 10 million kids ages two through 18 living without dental coverage, Kool Smiles aims to make trips to the dentist both fun for kids and affordable for their parents or guardians. Here’s how we do it:
We want to create an atmosphere that excites children about going to the dentist. Our waiting rooms are colorful and bright, filled with games and toys for your children. Most even have a full playground set where children can climb and explore while they wait for their appointment.
