At Kool Smiles, our primary goal is to treat children and ensure each child has access to high quality dental care, regardless of insurance coverage. Below are some frequently asked questions we receive concerning Medicaid and children’s dental health.
Children’s Health Insurance Programs (CHIPs) are low-cost health insurance plans for kids whose families make too much money to qualify for Medicaid, but still need some assistance. Dental care is provided for kids enrolled in CHIPs, but each state determines the services they can receive.
Absolutely. We place no limit on the number of Medicaid families we see, and we’re always accepting new patients. You can make an appointment online or give us a call today.
To receive dental benefits from Medicaid, there needs to be a medical reason for treatment. Preventative visits like exams, cleanings, and sealants qualify as medical reasons for treatment. Procedures without a medical reason will not be covered by Medicaid.
Yes. It’s recommended that kids visit the dentist around their first birthday. Your child’s baby teeth help them chew and speak, paving the way for permanent teeth to come in. Here’s a few great tips on caring for kid’s baby teeth.
When you bring your child to Kool Smiles, you’ll find a helpful and friendly staff, and offices that are designed to entertain and educate kids. Most of our offices even have a playground.
