There are lots of other reasons to choose Kool Smiles.
When you schedule a dentist appointment on a Saturday, you may wonder how you’ll be able to pay for the visit. Even if you have dental insurance, there’s always the fear that something will go wrong and you won’t be able to fix the issue until Monday.
Kool Smiles provide parents with flexible payment options. Our clinics accept several forms of government insurance. Patients who are on Medicaid or receive health and dental insurance through a state program, such as CHIP, can be confident their payment will be accepted at Kool Smiles. Medicaid covers many different children’s dental procedures to promote healthy dental habits. We are also proud to accept TRICARE for our Saturday and weekday dental services.
If you are uninsured or your child’s procedure is not covered by insurance, Kool Smiles offers payments options for your family. We understand that it’s not always possible to pay up front for a large dental bill. If your child needs a dental procedure on Saturday, we are happy to determine which payment option works for you.
Our clinics accept cash and credit payments for our affordable dental services. Kool Smiles offers flexible payment plans to fit every budget. In addition to payment plans to pay for your Saturday dentist visit, we accept CareCredit. CareCredit and other healthcare credit cards are designed to offer patients a way to pay off their dental and medical bills at a low monthly rate.
One of our biggest goals at Kool Smiles is to provide your child with a safe and fun dental experience. Kids are often scared of the dentist. A child who is afraid of a dentist appointment won’t want to give up their Saturday to get dental work done. We know that putting a child at ease for their Saturday dentist appointment can make their dental procedures go smoother.
All of our clinics provide spacious waiting areas where your child can feel free to move around. Each of these waiting areas features fun toys and games to take your kid’s mind off of the dentist appointment. Even on Saturdays, children enjoy playing in our clinics and making friends. The playgrounds at some of our clinics are especially helpful for calming a child with a Saturday dentist appointment.
Emergencies never seem to happen at a convenient time. Dental emergencies are no exception. When your child has a dental emergency, it’s important to understand when the emergency room is the right option.
If your child is seriously injured or has a medical emergency, call 911 right away.
Sometimes a child’s dental emergency is not severe enough for an emergency room visit but still needs immediate attention. Having a dentist that offers flexible hours and Saturday appointments can help make getting emergency dental care easy.
Kool Smiles offers extended and weekend hours, so we can quickly take care of your child’s dental emergency. Call your nearest location in advance for the best care.
When your child is in pain, you want to help them feel better as soon as possible. The Kool Smiles dental offices are open on Saturdays and weeknights. We provide expert emergency dental treatment for common dental emergencies including toothache and broken braces.
If your child has a toothache, the Kool Smiles dentists can figure out what’s causing the problem. Even if a toothache turns out to be caused by a minor issue that is easily fixed, your child could still be in intense pain. In other cases, a toothache may be caused by tooth decay, a common cause of toothaches. We offer Saturday appointments, so your kid doesn’t have to stay in pain until Monday.
Children who have braces may break off pieces of the wires and brackets. These sharp edges can be painful when pressing into the sides of your child’s mouth or gums. Besides causing constant pain when eating or chewing, these sharp edges can cause sores that may lead to infection. Being able to get a dentist appointment on a Saturday or late in the evening can help protect your child from serious dental issues from broken braces.
As a parent, you want what is best for your child, especially when they are in pain. This includes knowing when to go to the emergency room. When your child has a serious tooth or oral health issue, an emergency dentist visit may not be enough.
If your child is facing a serious dental emergency, head to the emergency room right away. You can call 911 if you cannot get your child to the emergency room yourself. A trip to the emergency room may seem scary or unnecessary, but in a true emergency, it is the best choice for the health of your child.
Making time for regular dental checkups is important for your child’s dental health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 17% of kids ages 5–19 have untreated dental problems like tooth decay and cavities. If left untreated, these conditions can lead to an adulthood of unhealthy teeth and other, more serious problems.
At Kool Smiles, we know that making children feel comfortable at the dentist can help them form healthy oral hygiene habits. That’s why we offer low-cost dental clinics in convenient locations. Finding a dentist open on Saturday near you can help you keep your kids healthy.
With over 120 locations across the United States, Kool Smiles likely has a clinic with Saturday appointments in your area. Find your nearest Kool Smiles by calling 254-781-0553 and requesting an appointment for your child in just minutes. See you on Saturday!
