Our offices are typically located in underserved communities, so you have to travel less for the dental care your children need. We’re open from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturdays, which helps make scheduling more convenient for parents who have a hard time getting away from work during the week.
Kool Smiles knows that finding a dentist for your kids can be difficult, but we want to help make that process as easy as possible. Call us today at 254-781-0553 to schedule an appointment or to simply discuss options.
Not only does the Kool Smiles team include fully licensed general dentists, but we also have a pediatric dentist (or pedodontist) who has additional training in dental care for children. Each provider is approved by the Virginia Board of Dentistry and receives in-house training from Kool Smiles staff.
In addition to providing high-quality dental care to your children, Kool Smiles offers oral health education to the Christiansburg community. Through events like Sharing Smiles Day and Operation Troop Treats and partnerships with local organizations, our providers teach children how to take care of their teeth at a young age. Early education and good oral hygiene habits are the first steps to healthy smiles for life.
At Kool Smiles, we pride ourselves in making the dental experience welcoming and accessible, even for your kids. Many of our dentists will walk you and your child through the steps of each procedure to help you both feel more comfortable throughout the process.
One of the most common procedures that you’ll receive at a dentist’s office is a teeth cleaning. Now, cleanings are typically performed by dental hygienists not the general dentist. Because teeth cleanings are so common, it’s great to get accustomed to the process before you even come in.
Professional teeth cleaning includes the following steps:
Kool Smiles makes going to the dentist a positive experience for our patients by creating a fun, welcoming environment. Children enjoy our indoor play area while they wait for their appointment or their siblings receive care. Your dentist or hygienist will explain each step of your dental services and answer any questions to put you and your children at ease.
To make an appointment with our friendly Christiansburg dentists, call us today at 254-781-0553. Our office is open weekdays from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and Saturday from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.
